Illinois is sixth in the nation when it comes to tuberculosis cases.  There were a record low 347 cases in the state last year, but Public Health's Matthew Roberts says it's still a problem because most people don't get proper treatment.

Roberts comments

Roberts says the majority of the TB cases in Illinois are found in people who were either born outside the U.S., or previously lived in another country.  Symptoms of TB include fatigue, weight loss, fever, night sweats, and a persistent cough.
