Last Update: 21/07/2019

TAWAU, July 21 (Bernama) -- Tuberculosis (TB) can be cured if patients remain consistent in their treatment, according to a medical specialist.  

"Patients can't be treated if they don't keep their appointments and don't take their medication on excuses of logistics problem,"  said Dr Nurul Idayu Mior Azmi of Apas Balung Health Clinic.

According to her, Tawau recorded the second highest after Kota Kinabalu in the spread of TB.

"Kampung Inderasabah has been among the localities of TB since 2017 to date with 13 cases," she said at a programme, 'Let's learn about TB' at Dewan Serbaguna Kampung Inderasabah, which was launched by Apas assemblyman Datuk Nizam Abu Bakar Titingan today.

Meanwhile, Nizam hoped the programme could be continued as an ongoing campaign on TB awareness.
