Concept of Quarantine

Webster's 1828 Dictionary

Quarantine
Properly, the space of forty days; appropriately, the term of forty days during which a ship arriving in port and suspected of being infected with a malignant, contagious disease, is obliged to forbear all intercourse with the city or place. Hence,
Restraint of intercourse to which a ship is subjected on the presumption that she may be infected, either for forty days or for any other limited term. It is customary for the proper officers to determine the period of restraint at their discretion, according to circumstances. Hence we hear of a quarantine of five days, of ten, of thirty, etc. as well as of forty. We say, a ship performs quarantine or rides at quarantine We also apply the word to persons. The passengers and crew perform quarantine
In law, the period of forty days, during which the widow of a man dying seized of land, has the privilege of remaining to the mansion house.

Collin's English Dictionary

Quarantine
(Medicine) a period of isolation or detention, esp of persons or animals arriving from abroad, to prevent the spread of disease, usually consisting of the maximum known incubation period of the suspected disease.
(Medicine) the place or area where such detention is enforced
any period or state of enforced isolation

[1600–10; < Italian quarantina period of forty days, derivative of quaranta forty « Latin quadrāgintā]

History Repeats

Quarantine

Flu is one of the diseases that has been looked upon as contagious; and people are advised to remain at home or out of crowds and assemblies as it is commonly believed that the disease is spread by contact with those who are afflicted. The process used by the medical system to prevent spreading during the rare epidemic made them the laughing stock of the country. The fact that the multitudes of people who were forced to wear masks in all public places brought universal condemnation upon the entire medical system and caused all to ask why they had the power to impose such unsanitary and unscientific methods on the public, and do it in the name of science.

When it is realized that the “flu”, colds, and many other ailments are only the product of conditions, we will have but little difficulty in not only curing, but preventing.
