The Year in TB: 2020

Each year, we recognize World TB Day on March 24.  This annual event commemorates the date in 1882 when Dr. Robert Koch announced his discovery of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacteria that causes tuberculosis (TB).  Too many people still suffer from TB disease.  We must continue to find and treat cases of active TB disease, test and treat latent TB infection to prevent progression to disease, and turn the elimination of TB into a reality.

On this World TB Day, we are pleased to share Ohio’s 2020 data.  Details can be found on the TB Data and Surveillance page.  National 2020 TB data can be found in the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report tuberculosis report.

United States: 7,163 cases reported | 2.2 per 100,000 population

Ohio: 130 TB cases reported | 1.1 per 100,000 population
