Doctors and health staff Can Land in jail 2 years for not reporting TB cases
With around 2.8 million cases, India has the highest number of tuberculosis patients, the World Health Organisation's TB Report-2017 says. Today, President and PM have also come out to address the issue of Tuberculosis in India., urging it to stop by 2050.
In a drive to make India tuberculosis (TB) free, the Indian government has introduced a provision according to which chemists and hospital staff treating TB patientswho do not give information to the health authorities about each and every patient that approach them could face up to two years in jail. In Telangana and AP, a mere 1,700 patients were reported by private hospitals during that year, said experts during an awareness programme held at a city hospital on Friday, on the eve of World Tuberculosis Day. The date marks the day in 1882 when Robert Koch announced that he had discovered the bacterium that causes TB, which opened the way towards diagnosing and curing this disease.

The TB mortality rate in the Region (5 per 100 000 population in 2016) remains much lower than the global average (17 per 100 000). Many countries are now making greater efforts to combat TB.
TB is preventable and curable; however, persistent challenges remain. Launching TB Free India Campaign in Delhi earlier this month, Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Yet, contrary to WHO guidelines and other global human rights standards, the public health or criminal law practices of some countries allow for involuntary hospitalization or even imprisonment of people with TB, while some countries have laws that permit mandatory treatment.
Tuberculosis is the largest infectious disease killer in the world, even surpassing HIV. It is also not true that TB patients shouldn't eat with the family during meals, and that patients can't return to work or school.
Continuous coughing for two or more weeks, blood in saliva & cough, sudden weight loss, lack of appetite, night sweats, fever, chills, and fatigue. "However", she continued, "they may develop TB disease in the future and are often prescribed treatment to prevent them from developing TB disease".
