Tuberculosis is a respiratory disease that is spread through bacterial infections.
According to Mr Olubanwo, all patients range in age from just five weeks to 63-years-old.
Overcrowded households may have contributed to the disease’s outbreak.
In response to the outbreak, the AHA has doubled its number of outreach workers.
A hotline is now in place for people to call in for additional support.
Mr Olubanwo told CTV News: “We want to empower and provide more education and more supports so that they will be part of their treatment plan and intervention planning.
“We don’t want to do it independently without assessing their needs.”
News of the outbreak follows scientists identifying two new variants of bovine tuberculosis in Dordogne, France.
A total of 27 outbreaks of bovine tuberculosis were detected in the region in southwest France, during a 2020 to 2021 investigation.
The outbreaks represent nearly a third of France’s 93 outbreaks.
