Unfortunately, about one-third of patients fail to receive a quick, accurate diagnosis or effective treatment, making them more likely to die from this curable disease. With 1.5 million deaths in 2020, TB is the second most prevalent infectious cause of death.
If diagnosed in time, TB is curable within 6 months.
