||Tuberculosis among migrant farm workers - Virginia
||22/29 Aug. 1986, Vol.256, No.8, p.977-981. 6 ref.
||A lead from the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report from the Centers for Disease Control (Atlanta, USA). The prevalence rates of tuberculosis among these workers are 10-20 times higher than the national incidence rate in the USA, and are suggested to be due to the crowded living conditions shared only by adult migrant farm workers.
