OPINION: What fight against tuberculosis can teach us about fighting COVID-19 Thomas Reuters Foundation "As we fight COVID-19, we must seize the opportunity to rethink our approach to health security and break out of the cycle of panic and neglect. As governments around the world struggle to contain spiraling infections and an ever-increasing death toll from COVID-19, it’s worth reflecting on what lessons we can draw from the long and still unfinished fight against tuberculosis (TB) – the world’s most deadly infectious disease that kills nearly 1.5 million per year."
