Good news! TB cases fading down
Critical and complicated tuberculosis patients are usually admitted to TB hospital. Currently, there are 273 DOT centres and eight drug-resistant TB centres. So, many patients get treatment at DOT centres. Only, 10% to 20% TB patients are admitted to TB hospital. “Initially, in comparison with previous years where 80% to 90% patients used to get admitted, now the number has fallen to 70%,” said Padmaja Deepak Keskar, executive health officer, BMC.
