FRONTLINE: TB Silent Killer

Tuberculosis was once thought to be a disease of the past. But with more than 8 million new infections every year, virulent new drug-resistant strains emerging faster than ever, and outbreaks occurring across the world (including in Europe and the United States), TB - passed simply by a cough or a sneeze - has become the second leading cause of death from an infectious disease on the planet.

In this special FRONTLINE documentary, filmmaker Jezza Neumann travels to Swaziland, the country with the world's highest incidence of TB. With startling intimacy and emotion, TB Silent Killer delivers an unforgettable portrait of the people living at the pandemic's epicenter. Through the intimate stories of people battling TB, as well as the nurses and the doctors who are fighting to save their lives despite the stigma and infection threat they face for doing so, Neumann delivers a haunting, powerful look at this disease's human toll, and sounds an alarm for us all.

A Must See Film For The Globally Minded!
Review by Nina C. on 07/17/20 review stating A Must See Film For The Globally Minded!
I watched and was also stunned at the size of the epidemic + loved the personal impact of these poor souls. One never knows when this information will become important here at home or when involved in charity or missions work. Also loved the Forgotten Plague recently aired. A definite must for all graduating medical students!

Review by Bill C. on 07/17/20 review stating TB Silent Killer
I think Jezza Neumann is either a genius or the hand of God intervened in the production of this documentary. I watched the broadcast twice and intend to buy the DVD. I had no idea Tuberculosis was affecting 8 million people every year and the little girl stole and broke my heart at the same time because of the life she has had to lead because of this deadly disease. I wish I could adopt her and her brother, I so much would like to meet and help her.
