"Contrary to popular theory, it is not a highly contagious disease, and about 95 percent of the human population is naturally immune."

Where did they get that from? Certainly not from the CDC, which lists leprosy as a nationally notifiable disease, subject to quarantine due to its public health threat.

There was a long time leper colony in Carville, La. (Yes, like James Carville) that closed years ago. I often wonder why. Perhaps the National Health Service decided it was not contagious.
