Tuberculosis passes HIV as No. 1 infectious disease

“Tuberculosis surpassed HIV as the leading cause of death from infectious disease in the world in 2014, according to a report released Wednesday by the World Health Organization. But it’s not because more people are getting infected. Global health officials said on Wednesday that they are able to better track cases to report more accurate numbers. This year, 1 million new cases were reported in Indonesia, significantly revising data from last year, which showed half that number.”
