    TB also I should think TB is bigger problem than leprosy

    and maybe they are paranoid. maybe they are just trying to stop it before it even had started?
    to be honest, i never ahve gone deeper into the subject,Leprosy, how it starts, who can get it, can you get it from touching, being touched and the like. The test was required, nothing extra needed to be done, so i got over with it.
    And coming back from Moscow to Lipetsk in a full bus, with people coughing and sneezing and wheezing i was wondering, what the hell i might catch here....
    Leprosy for sure not.
    There is no greater treasure then pleasure....

    how clean the ( pay) public toilets are along the bus route. no port-a- loos but toilets.. and they for sure are cleaner than most of Moscow's pay toilets, special these plastic cubes..

    No toilet in the bus

    Here, city busses will not have toilet, but inter-city busses all have them

    and anyway, there are 2 pit stops,(travel time is 7h) that long/short anyone can hold for sure.
    you have had a seat next to the toilet on a long distance flight or train? never mind how good the air con might be, it still smells...

    Ive heard the leprosy--or, in the pc vernacular, Hansens disease---test is reciprocal or something like that...yes, the TB strains in Russia are unique and resistant to meds, Ive read that there are strains peculiar to certain prisons.
