Two cases of leprosy could have broken out at a Californian primary school, parents have been warned.
Parents have now refused to send their children to Indian Hills Elementary in Jurupa Valley after notes were sent home warning parents that two students “might” be sick with leprosy.
The school, about an hour's drive from Los Angeles, sent out the warning on Friday, CBS Los Angeles has reported.
Jurupa Valley Unified Superintendent Elliott Duchon said the school's classrooms had been decontaminated in response to the threat.
He said the two students, who had been warned of the potential diagnosis by a doctor, had alerted the school's nursing staff.
Mr Duchon said: "For parents, they need to make a decision for their children but we’re not recommending any precautions.
"There is not a risk at this time."
The students believed to have been infected have also been pulled out of class for the time being.It is unclear whether the infected students are related to each other or whether they had recently been overseas.https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/1748956/primary-school-kids-struck-down-with-biblical-flesh-rotting-skin-disease/
Note also that they didn't mention race.
But hey, this is just one of the benefits of multiculturalism, just roll with it.
