Manitoba's tuberculosis epidemic continues

According to statistics, most tuberculosis patients are located in Manitoba.

Public Health Agency of Canada believes that it is worthwhile to improve methods of identifying the disease at an early stage and to increase funding for controlling the disease after giving the diagnosis in the province. Also, additional studies of this problem may improve the situation in general.

The recent data show that most patients are in northern communities and among the indigenous population.

It is a disease of poverty, so a number of changes should be done to improve the statistics in the province. In addition to poverty, overcrowding also contributes to the rapid spread of the disease.

Medicals recommend immediately seek help if any symptoms of active kind of disease are found. The treatment can be more effective if to learn about it in its early stage.
