Maybe not relevant to the story but a little tidbit I ran across awhile back is that despite the historical quarantining of lepers, leprosy is one of the least contagious of the relatively common diseases, while mumps, the common childhood disease is one of the most.
Ah yes, but the disease described in the Bible doesn’t have the same symptoms as the disease we call leprosy today.
I’ve read about Leprosy a few times.
You seem to know much more about it than me.
Why are there no cases here?
