Benguela – At least 317 cases of tuberculosis were diagnosed from January to March 26, by the anti-tuberculosis dispensary of Benguela.

According to the official of the institution, Vasco Domingos Tchambasuku, who would not reveal the data comparing to the same period of last year, the most hit age group is from 15 to 45 years old.
He said that the adherence of the population to the treatment centre is bigger due to the sensitization and mobilisation of the population to join the treatment.
Vasco Domingos added that there are still people who suffer from this disease or symptoms compatible with tuberculosis and do not look for proper places for the treatment, which concerns the institution.
