Hi Lion, Yeah from what I understand it can lay dorment for years. They do the same thing in the US. My son caught it when he was in Iraq. He was a medic there so he was more susceptible. However as I am sure you know that anywhere there is a group of people together it can spread like wild fire. I own support groups for our troops and we have sent out letters to them warning not to use the same towels as others or the same razors anything that can spread this aweful disease. It can and does kill people. You would think they would at least let these men and women know. Most of the medics are very suceptible and they are giving meds and bandaids out daily. I know your frustration and I wish there was more know about
it. I hope your mom and grandad are going to be alright
