The original article [1] did not contain comprehensive information regarding two authors’ affiliations that may be considered a potential competing interest. VN Chihota and GJ Churchyard are affiliated with the Aurum Institute. The Aurum Institute was founded in 1998 as a subsidiary of Anglogold Ashanti Health Services to meet the needs of AngloGold Ashanti with respect to TB, HIV, and occupational lung diseases. The name was changed to Aurum Institute in 2005 when it became independent from AngloGold Ashanti Health Services. The Aurum Institute is now a registered not-for-profit, public benefit organisation that receives no funding from the mining industry.
