What measures for disease prevention that were used historically should be used today? Why do you think some were discarded as preventive measures?

  • Health -

    People with some contagious diseases used to be quarantined. When I was a child, about 1943, I had scarlet fever. Of course, my younger brother caught it from me. My mother, brother, and I were quarantined and couldn't leave the house for six weeks for fear of contaminating others.

    I doubt if quarantining is necessary today.

    Lepers also used to be quarantined.
