Hmm, that's interesting. Leprosy has been around since 4000 BC. It was first recorded in 1550 BC. The bacteria was discovered in 1873. About 250,000 people get leprosy each year. Oh, and 1 person out of every 1 million people dies of leprosy. That's certainly a relief!
I should probably call my sister to tell her to get treated!

Hey sis. I just went to the doctor, and I think we both have leprosy. Yes. Yes, I'm sure. The doctor prescribed me some antibiotics. I think I got it from you!
It's not caused by a virus, it's caused by bacteria. No, they are not the same. Viruses are not alive, so they use cells as their reproductive hosts. They are treated with vaccines. Bacteria? Yes, they are single celled microorganisms. They are treated with antibiotics.
I'm pretty sure I got it from you. Leprosy is an infectious disease- it is caused by a pathogen and is spread from person to person. Yes, you did cough on me! It is not non-infectious. A non-infectious disease, like cancer, is not spread by person, and it is not caused by pathogens.
Whatever, just make sure you go to the doctor. Alright, you take care. Bye.
My sores are finally gone! The antibiotics worked.
That's great! But that won't make you any better at tennis!
