As state officials moved to close a South Florida hospital specializing in tuberculosis treatment, federal health officials were finding a serious outbreak of the disease among the homeless in the northeastern part of the state, a newspaper reported Sunday. An April 5 report sent to Florida health officials by Dr. Robert Luo of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned Florida health officials that a tuberculosis outbreak in Jacksonville was linked to 13 deaths and 99 illnesses, according to a report by The Palm Beach Post.
