    New study suggests leprosy came from Europe

    Leprosy may have originated in Europe rather than Asia, according to the largest study to date on ancestral strains of the disease.

    The study has revealed that more leprosy strains than expected were present in medieval Europe, prompting scientists to reconsider the origins and age of the devastating disease.

    Just grey squirrel propaganda.

    Seriously, although grey squirrels were tested in UK and found not to be carriers, have any gray squirrels been tested in North America?
    They have been found to harbor bovine TB (Mycobacteriium bovis)
