when we had the BCG, (born 1968)
they dud a skin test first to see if you had the resistance to it, before
deciding whom to inoculate, so obviously people could get the resistance
without getting the disease.
I heard that it is also spreading again a people who are prescribed
antibiotics are not taking the full course (e.g. homeless people etc), so
that is why antibiotic resistance strains are developing.
Here in Israel, I heard that it is coming back as there are many immigrants
from Ethiopia, who have bought it here.
But people are not dying from it in the way they did in books.
