Could India’s untreatable tuberculosis problem become the next worldwide pandemic to affect the entire global community?

According to Dr. Zarir Udwadia, one of the country’s leading TB authorities India has “finally ended up with a virtually untreatable strain of tuberculosis in India.”

What started out as five cases in December has climbed to 15 cases in January. While these numbers may not seem all that dramatic, think about what would happen if those 15 cases doubled to 30 and than those 30 cases doubled to 60 and so on. I think you get the idea.

Of course the India government’s first reaction to this news was to deny Dr. Udwadia and his colleagues findings.

Yet in April they “quietly confirmed the strain, according to internal Indian health-ministry documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.” Read the rest of the article.

Prepper’s who believe that a global pandemic is on the horizon should pay special attention to what is going on in India. Because what happens in India will not stay in India. Thanks to global travel.
