TB outbreak in Dublin?

This is odd. The talks of a TB outbreak in Dublin and the only fever hospital, (if that is the right word) Peamount has been closed down.

Tuberculosis has a long and sad root in Irish folk memory. For my parents and grandparents generations, it was scourge of life. The one great equaliser. And one of the major indicators of a modern Ireland was it’s eradication under the dedicated Minister for Health Noel Browne

The depth of Noel Browe’s legendary contribution to Irish society was eloquently put by Senator David Norris.

So, what’s up with that, now we seem to be going backwards, it that progress?

Should we worry?
