stop digging graves cause you are re-introducing viral resting spores than can re-activate' contary to science medical books viruses can exist in inanimate state' outside host cells' leprosy is a prime example of this'the sope is 90 nano microns in diameter and rests as cyrtaline format;

there are 3 main kinds of leprosy; tuberculoid and lepromatous and a viral form’ similar to TB virus’ disease. In tuberculoid leprosy, there are few, small skin lesions, and only a few bacterium are present. In lepromatous leprosy, skin lesions are more widespread and there are many bacteria present. As this disease progresses, hard knots and skin folds may begin to form on the face and the nose may actually collapse. This gives the person the appearance the lion-like appearance that is commonly associated with the disease. Note; it is highly contagious; the TB vaccine can help ward off Hansens disease’ and HIV this is because of B cell antigen recognition’ so multiplexed antibodies mainly phagoctical’ that can attack diseased neurons this is why activating skin lipid marcophages is helpful with hiv’ acts like a surface lipid barrier that prevents clematin on T cells’
