Human News

The Plan would save about 14 million lives over one decade. Estimating the average life-years saved as about 30 per person gives a total of 420 million life-years.

Human News aims to devote 1 character to each 40,000 life-years, or 1000 average lives. Thus, the number of characters could be 420 million life-years / 40,000 life-years/character = 10,500 characters. Since previous articles on these subjects occupied about 100 characters, this article can have 10,400 characters. This article has 4300 characters plus about 500 characters for the photo, thus there could be more articles on TB in the future.
