One third of world's population has tuberculosis bacterium

Are we about to see an explosion of TB in this country due to New Labours unfettered and unchecked immigration policy ?

"* Of the 1.8 million deaths in 2008, or 4,930 deaths a day, half a million were Aids patients. TB affects mostly young adults in their most productive years. The vast majority of TB deaths are in the developing world. More than half occur in Asia."

"* The World Health Organization estimates that 9.4 million people developed active TB in 2008, up from 9.27 million in 2007 and 9.24 million in 2006. Among the 15 countries with the highest TB incidence rates in 2007, 13 were in Africa, while half of all new cases were in six Asian countries - Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Pakistan and the Philippines. "

How many Immigrants/Colonisers with TB are now living amongst us?
An FOI request regarding how many TB cases have been diagnosed in this country since 1997 may be a good idea.
