Number and incidence of new active TB cases, San Diego County, 2014-2023

In 2020, the number of cases in San Diego dropped more than 20% below the 5-year pre-pandemic annual average (244 cases), likely reflecting multiple pandemic related factors that reduced transmission, detection and diagnosis of active TB, testing and treatment for TB infection, and travel and migration. In 2023, San Diego County reported 243 new active TB cases, a 17% increase compared to 208 in 2022. Return to pre-pandemic levels of activities, including health care seeking, may explain the increase in 2023.
