During the Middle Ages, sick people wore a bell or a rattle with them. Which disease did they have?

smallpox
plague
tuberculosis
leprosy
Leprosy was in­cur­able, but people could live for long with the disease (unlike the cases of other epi­demic­s). Since leprosy was found in­fec­tious, leprosy stigma has been uni­ver­sal, and has been present in all parts of the world where leprosy was present. In Europe, the leper would carry a clapper and bell to warn of his ap­proach.
