Mortality due to tuberculosis in Warsaw in the period from 1918 to 1922
The highest tuberculosis mortality is shown in suburban districts, deprived of sanitary facilities, characterized by living in overcrowded, one-room premises - writes Dr. Wincenty Bogucki, president of the Warsaw Anti-Tuberculosis Society in an article published in 1924 in Miesięcznik Zdrowie
