Some bacteria, including tuberculosis, are able to invade because the body launches the ‘wrong’ immune response, say researchers.

Instead of fighting off tuberculosis, people with a severe infection produce a protein which attacks viruses, the journal Science reports.

About 8.7 million people are infected with tuberculosis every year.

The findings may explain why viruses can make people more susceptible to bacterial infections.

A spring peak in tuberculosis infections may be linked to the effects of viruses circulating in winter, experts suggested.
