Under recently revised WHO definitions, death from TB or lung disorders is lumped in the same “cause of death” category as death from influenza. The WHO International Statistical Classification of Diseases, ICD-10, Chapter X, “Diseases of the Respiratory System,” Code J09-18, combine under one title: Influenza and Pneumonia. The cause of death from untreated TB is recorded as pneumonia and dumped into J09-18. The suspicion is that this was done for political reasons and that all the deaths reported since April 2009 attributed to H1N1 Influenza A are in fact deaths of patients with severe pulmonary conditions such as TB that has been left untreated resulting in fatal pneumonia.
