Did you actualy read the article?
We are talking about a drug resistant form of TB that is pretty damn serious when it sports a 25% kill rate in the united states.
We had an event with this strain a few days ago in Colorado that killed a young girl which required a hazmat response, this is not you're everyday TB
it's a form that has, whether deliberately or not, been created to resist our typical ways of combating it.
Look Im not saying run for the hills we are all going to die, but it's a pretty big deal when something like this happens in the middle of one of the
biggest cities in the world and on this large or a scale.
Even more so when people take on the attitude you displayed:

TB not a threat
Now 2 days later we have a MAJOR STATESIDE out break......
Yeah move along nothing to see here.....
Anti-tuberculosis (TB) drug resistance is a major public health problem that threatens progress made in TB care and control worldwide. Drug resistance
arises due to improper use of antibiotics in chemotherapy of drug-susceptible TB patients. This improper use is a result of a number of actions
including, administration of improper treatment regimens and failure to ensure that patients complete the whole course of treatment. Essentially, drug
resistance arises in areas with weak TB control programmes. A patient who develops active disease with a drug-resistant TB strain can transmit this
form of TB to other individuals.
