Leprosy in Kommiefornia?

Two elementary school students in California have been diagnosed with leprosy, officials claim.

The disease, also known as Hansen's, is an incredibly rare condition caused by slow multiplying bacteria which can destroy sufferers' eyesight and all sensation in their skin.

It's really no big deal according to the Powers That Be as all of the classrooms have been 'disinfected'. sarc  :lol: :lol:

dAILYMAIL IS ALL ABOUT HYPE.

However, leprosy is actually not that contagious. You can catch it only if you come into close and repeated contact with nose and mouth droplets from someone with untreated leprosy. Children are more likely to get leprosy than adults.

Today, about 180,000 people worldwide are infected with leprosy, according to the World Health Organization, most of them in Africa and Asia. About 100 people are diagnosed with leprosy in the U.S. every year, mostly in the South, California, Hawaii, and some U.S. territories.

What Causes Leprosy?

Leprosy is caused by a slow-growing type of bacteria called Mycobacterium leprae (M. leprae). Leprosy is also known as Hansen's disease, after the scientist who discovered M. leprae in 1873.

Symptoms can appear as late as 20 years after a person has been infected.

When the elementary school kids I've seen coughed or sneezed, they didn't give a second thought to then not touch everything in sight.
