Parts of London have higher rates of tuberculosis than countries such as Rwanda, Eritrea and Iraq, according to a report.
The capital recorded more than 2,500 new cases of TB last year - about 40% of the UK's total.
The report, by the London Assembly, found a third of London boroughs exceed the World Health Organisation's (WHO) "high incidence" threshold of more than 40 cases per 100,000 people.
Of these, Hounslow, Brent, Harrow, Newham and Ealing have rates of more than 150 incidents per 100,000 people.
WHO figures from 2013 show Iraq has 45 per 100,000 while Rwanda had 69 and Eritrea 92.

Are these people who have no underlying problems with their immune systems? Some of the new drugs can leave people a bit vulnerable to TB and that kind of thing.
