“over 100 people have leprosy “
Not quie right. There are over a 100 cases of TB. 8 for leprosy. I read the original article and even sent the link to a couple of friends.
From doing a quick internet review of leprosy, it appears indeed that the original story was comprised of panicky uneducated idiot doctors, and the supposed “coverup” article is the one with accurate information.
