It is common to find leprosy in humans. It can also be cured with medicines. But for the first time in the past, Leprosy in Chimpanzee was seen in Chimpanzee. Some pictures of it have also been shared. Huge boils were seen on the face of the chimpanzee. Symptoms of this disease were never seen in chimpanzees before today. This is the first case in itself, which has surprised the experts.
These cases of leprosy in chimpanzees were seen in Guinea-Bissau and the Ivory Coast of West Africa. According to scientists from the University of Exeter’s Center for Ecology and Conservation, the signs of the disease found in chimpanzees are different from those of humans. It is not yet known how leprosy spread to chimpanzees. But there is every possibility that now these chimpanzees will spread this disease to the rest of the animals of the forest. However, experts say that this disease has reached the chimpanzee only from a human.
The effect of leprosy on the animal’s body was shown
If we talk about leprosy, then only humans feed the bacteria that spread Ca, which is called Mycobacterium leprae bacteria. From these it must have reached these animals. At one time leprosy had troubled humans a lot. Before 1980, this disease was spreading rapidly. But after this antibiotics were made and it was put under control. It was not visible even in animals. In such a situation, the scientists were relaxed. But for the last twenty years, leprosy was being seen in the squirrels of the UK. After this in Armadillos of America. And in the latest case inside a chimpanzee.
This disease rots the whole body
Let us tell you that leprosy is an infectious disease, which spreads. It causes problems in the skin and nerves. If it is not treated, it can lead to skin damage and in some cases can lead to blindness. These cases are the first of their kind found in chimpanzees in Africa. According to Dr Kimberley Hawkings, these chimpanzees, which are counted among the closest relatives of humans, will now be studied. There is enthusiasm and concern among experts about this. Now all the things will be revealed in the further study only.
