because the story turned out to be a fake, a farce, a false report. Channel 5 got in big trouble for this, there is no leprocy outbreak.

In fact, 95% of people are immune to it.

If you are in the 5% to contract leprosy then it will be 100% for you or a family member. We need to not only to identify, but, quarantine and treat the leprosy and TB. These are not fake stories. I have the people ready to testiify regarding the contagious diseases here. Do you want to deny and pacify? I am learning the news does not always get the complete truth. They should remain unbiased, and continue investigating, and then report. Thanks for your interest. Actually, Ft. Smith is very close to Springdale, Rogers, etc. Thanks again for your interest. nancy jenkins

Who the heck are you?

I know I can't believe everything on TV, but the health department made a scream to denounce this story. The health department would be the first to quarantine and take necessary steps to protect the public if it were a true "outbreak."
