Healthcare alert: Leprosy reappears in Spain due to immigration

leprosy, an illness which we had already long ago forgotten, has reappeared. It reappeared in another way, without leper colonies nor inhuman stigmatizations, but with sporadic infections, which is the most important factor from the epidemiologic point of view.

In spite of the fact that this illness continues to be a “rather uncommon” one, doctors give advice to remain watchful. The vast majority of the population has never seen a leper in their whole life. But a recent study by the London Hospital for Tropical Diseases alert said that there’s a delay in the diagnose of up to 80%, which increases the risk that the affected might suffer from serious physical disabilities due to the illness.

Between 15 and 25 cases of leprosy are diagnosed every year in Spain, being this an illness which is very infectious. In the last year, 25 people got the illness, and there’s more than 450 patients in a medical center in Alicante.

The majority of cases in Spain are those of immigrants who most surely arrived already with the illness in their bodies. On a worldwide scale, half of the affected live in India. There are also sources of infection in Angola, Brasil, Madagascar, Mozambique, Nepal, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Tanzania.

The illness is caused by a bacteria, the Mycobacterium Leprae. The WHO recommended in 1981 a combined therapy composed by 3 drugs (Multidrug therapy – TMM): Dapson, Rifampicin and Clofamizin. “This drug combination kills the pathogen and heals the patient. The TMM is secure and effective, and can be given easily to the patient anywhere. The drug is made available to all patients in form of blisters given in a monthly period”, the WHO explains.

According to the Foundation Fontilles, the problem is when there’s no early diagnosis. In this case the illness can cause disabilities, and its consequences may remain even if the illness itself is cured. This, and rejection towards sick persons are the main problems regarding this illness in Spain. This declarations were made on The International Day Against Leprosy.

  1. More immigration from Christian areas could stop Islamization. But all these posts are not nearly as powerful as beginning a new religion. Only the force of religion can stop Cultural “Marxism”. Only the threat of eternal damnation can keep the Atheist in line. Cultural “Marxism” is connected to Islam. Islam threatens to destroy the whole world in Syria. Only if White people, and White people alone, are allowed to be racist, the world can be saved. The Atheist must give up his right to fight racism, if the world is to survive. The Atheist must give up his right to fight anti-semitism, if the world is to survive. The Atheist must give up his right to fight islamophobia, if the world is to survive. People of Color must give up their right to exact revenge on the White man, if the world is to survive. The Person of Color must accept the boot of the White man in his neck, forever, if the world is to survive. In religious language, Iblis is stronger than Yahweh and Allah combined. Yahweh and Allah both rebelled against Iblis, they both burn in hell, forever, whining about the injustice of the rule of the White man and his God, Iblis. Justice for People of Color is Communism. Communism destroys the world. Only by accepting Fascism, and Fascism with vengeance, can the world be saved. The White man has the right to fuck Women of Color, the Man of Color cannot have the White woman. Forever. He will live forever in a hell of sexual humiliation. Every attempt to break the chains of the White man will result in more pain, and more and more.

  2. I remember a doctor in Galveston, TX telling about diagnosing leprosy about 20 years ago. It’s nothing new. Immigrants carry it in and expect the U.S. to treat it for free. I’ve heard the Cubans were releasing leprosy and T.B. patients into the U.S. encouraging them to immigrate because Cuban hospitals can’t treat these diseases.

  3. The high infection rate is the reason for the old leper colonies, isolation is one of the ways that you can stop the disease from spreading. Are we to let the disease infect thousands to millions because quarantine is politically incorrect?

  4. Only by declaring that abortion is worse than the Holocaust you will be able to break the vile spell of political correctness. Every Jew who denies this, will spend eternity in Hell. Although the Holocaust was not that bad, it would be better to put the Jewish women in German harems. Only conversion to my religion can save the Jew from eternal damnation. I speak truth. The unbelieving Jew and the unbelieving Muslim will be brothers in hell. Islam destroys itself in Syria. My religion requires that all synagogues and mosques in Europe will be destroyed.
