New tuberculosis cases in Singapore on the rise

Via Straits Times :

" The number of new cases of tuberculosis (TB) is on the rise among Singaporeans and foreigners.

The Ministry of Health (MOH) was alerted to 2,791 new cases last year, a figure 10.9 per cent higher than the 2,517 in 2009.

Even among residents alone, that is, citizens and permanent residents, the rise is palpable: 795 new cases surfaced between January and June this year."
