    COVID-19 has further complicated the the mission of eradicating tuberculosis in Alaska, according to state and local health officials.

    A federal report released in March reported that in 2019, Alaska had the highest rate of tuberculosis infections in the country, with 58 documented cases. According to data collected by the state, 2020 is on track to reach a similar high: There have been 38 cases in the state so far this year.
    “At the same time that we have challenges with the COVID crisis, we’re also seeing a rise in tuberculosis cases,” said Natasha Pineda, director of the Anchorage Department of Health and Human Services, at a recent community briefing.

    “We are struggling at the moment,” she said.
