"World Tuberculosis Day"

Today is "World Tuberculosis Day." The World Health Organization says that one person gets infected with TB bacilli every second, that a third of the world's nearly 7-billion people suffer from it, and that "5-10% of people who are infected with TB bacilli (but who are not infected with HIV) become sick or infectious at some time during their life." Aargh! Ay-ayé!
