Leprosy and the rhetoric of elimination

In this Feature in the following sentence, the word “not” is missing (BMJ 2013;347:f6142, doi:10.1136/bmj.f6142). The sentence should have read: “Only two states—Bihar and Chhattisgarh—and one union territory—Dadra and Nagar Haveli—have not declared elimination of leprosy as a public health problem, but the sample survey, which has been seen by the BMJ, found that rates in some states were several times higher than the reported figures.”
