Tuberculosis (TB) has continued to be an important public health problem around the world. The map shows the reported number of new and relapse cases in Asian countries, using data deposited with the World Health Organisation. Countries coloured purple (including China) have a larger TB population. The yellow areas are supposed to be having a lower number of cases. The patterns should be interpreted with caution, as a higher number may reflect a better reporting system while a lower number could be a result of poor reporting.

結核病是全球性的公共衛生問題。圖示亞洲各國結核新及復發個案,數據來自世界衛生組織。紅色國家表示高結核病者數目,相對於綠色的低病者數目國家。不過,數目大並不一定代表情況嚴重,有可能是呈報較理想而已,進行數據分析時要小心。
