One of the benefits of posting to GT S/P is: you get to be alarmist. So here's my contribution. This morning's paper announced that "a mutant strain of tuberculosis is proving resistant to all known treatments" in India. "Spread of the strain could return tuberculosis to the fatal plague that killed two-thirds of people afflicted." Predictably, the Indian government has been trying to cover it up, and now that the news has been "outed," their government is accusing health officials of "starting a panic." "It's just the tip of the iceberg," said Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, of India's National Institute for Research in Tuberculosis. For treatments, Dr. Udwadia said, "We've got nothing."
