First 2 cases of TB in Botswana

This is an interesting article that I read on TB today. Botswana confirmed 100 cases of multi-drug resistant TB. According to a report released in November 2007 by the HIV Research, about one-third of the approximately 40 million HIV-positive people worldwide also are living with TB. From the report about 10% of people living with HIV/AIDS develop TB annually, according to the report. Approximately 90% of people living with HIV/AIDS will die within months of contracting TB. Here's the link if anyone is interested on this article.
