Abstract: None

Partial Text: Singh and colleagues [1] highlight safeguards against the spread of XDR-TB and suggest “involuntary detention” as a key infection control measure. Yet several important elements of the current response to XDR-TB may make the application of enforced confinement ineffective and inappropriate as part of the initial response to this problem.
