Five Foreign-Born Cases of Multi-Drug Resistant TB Diagnosed in Philadelphia

At least five foreign-born cases of multi-drug resistant TB were diagnosed in Philadelphia over the past three years, according to the Philadelphia Department of Public Health Tuberculosis Control Program.

One case of the foreign-born ‘MDR’ TB was diagnosed in the city hosting this week’s Democratic National Convention in 2015, two were diagnosed in 2014, and at least two were diagnosed in 2013, though that number may be as high as three or four.

No U.S.-born cases of MDR TB were diagnosed in Philadelphia during these three years, according to the report.

Why aren't all those immigrants at that convention. They are the ones that want all of them here, but they won't let them go to their convention.
