Free testing and treatment of latent TB is available in England for people from areas where TB is common.
TB breakthrough
Last year researchers in Oxford and Birmingham reported they had made a world-first breakthrough in the diagnosis of tuberculosis.
They managed to isolate different strains of the disease using a process called genome sequencing.
It means patients who may have waited months to get the right drugs can now be diagnosed in only a few days - so they have a greater chance of recovery.
While figures have gone down over the last six years in England, another issue in the battle to eradicate TB is drug resistance.
A recent study found one in five global cases of the disease is now resistant to at least one major treatment drug.

Interestingly, United’s interest in Costa stems all the way back to Sir Alex Ferguson’s time in charge of the club.

The legendary Scot looked into signing Costa twice before previously, first when he was at Gremio back in 2010, and then when he was at Shakhtar Donetsk – though he ultimately moved to Bayern.
