Precise mapping and spatial statistical analysis allowed for the identification of two types of TB concentrations: hotspots - raw concentrations of cases, and high-incidence zones - where TB incidence significantly exceeds the rate expected. The high-incidence zones were not fully explained by known risk factors for TB, such as high population…
