When I was kid, I saw several men and women who have Leprosy in the developing country about 1980’s.

This prehistory disease could be the oldest recorded ancient disease as reported by Hurst, YS (2019) in the book with title: No Matter Where the Journey Takes Me: One Man's Quest for a Leprosy- Free World).

Paleontologists conduct many studies about the disease that plagued humankind throughout the history.

They believe the root of this disease long long time ago, “likely stem back millions of years”.

Untreated disease of leprosy can cause deformities in the face and extremities that may lead to:

- Disability
- Stigmatization
- and Mortality.

Like Covid-19, leprosy is transmitted by close contacted. They are a droplet precaution.

Coughing and sneezing of an infected person can spread the disease to the healthy persons, especially when they are in the small together.

  2. Hello :=)

    Leprosy is mentioned in the Bible, and it is a horrible disease. Some of my friends who live in Africa have seen it first-hand. I hope that a cure will be discovered. I'm so glad you shared the beautiful roses.

  4. La lepra en su época era el terror de las enfermedades, por lo cruda y fea que es.
    Ahora al menos para ella hay un poco más de remedio.
    Un abrazo y feliz semana.
