dc.description.abstractTuberculosis has a much shorter incubation period than is widely thought, say Marcel A Behr and colleagues, and this has implications for prioritising research and public health strategies Between a quarter and a third of the world’s population are estimated to be latently infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The 2018 World Health Organization resource page for tuberculosis (TB) states: “On average, 5-10% of those who are infected will develop active TB disease over their lifetime.” Other authorities use terms such as “dormant” or “alive but inactive” (supplementary box 1).
