The Wider Image: 'White death' in Argentina: The hunger of poverty feeds tuberculosis
Dr. Santiago Jimenez, an infectious disease specialist, checks the lungs of Jorge Borda who is at the end of his tuberculosis treatment, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, January 29, 2019. Cases of the "white death" illness, closely linked to poverty, malnutrition and poor housing, have been on the rise since the turn of the decade as Latin America's third largest economy has grappled with repeat recessions and inflation.
