Serious diseases in our country are increasing and the number is increasing day by day, specifically cases of tuberculosis have increased significantly in the last year. Tirana holds the first highest number according to pneumologists, followed by Dibra and Shkodra.
"For the year 2022, there are 292 new cases, which is 10.5 new cases per 100,000 inhabitants compared to a year ago, an increase is observed, 4.4% of these cases. The largest weight is occupied by the active population, which is from 15 to 45, age 20-25 has the majority of these cases. In the hospital, we have 4 cases, 2 young and 2 over 60 years old", says Irma Tashi, pulmonologist.
Doctors think that the risk factor can be the way of life, the behavior in large communities such as schools, fashion houses or bars that are frequented by young people. But when should we suspect that we are affected by tuberculosis?
"A tuberculosis is a more prolonged clinic, if a temperature continues for more than 3 weeks, cough, weight loss and lack of appetite, you should contact the family doctor", said Irma Tashi, pulmonologist.
For the World Health Organization tuberculosis remains one of the world's biggest infectious killers, causing 1.6 million deaths each year and affecting millions more.
2022 has marked, for the first time in nearly two decades, an increase in the number of people suffering from drug-resistant TB, along with an increase in deaths. The WHO's goal is to end this disease by 2030.
