DO PEOPLE NO LONGER GET SICK AND DIE?
This was standard practice back when contagious and lethal diseases swept the land here in America. I found this in our files. People now think the powers of the Public Health officer was swept away by the miracle of science. Nope. They used to and still do have enormous power over the day to day life of citizens.
We used to believe in quarantine. When you think about it that's why we built the facilities at Ellis and Angel Islands. They worked for generations and were shuttered when the flow of migrants ebbed and they instead simply walked here from Mexico and we stood by and let them. Southern California has been paying for that with an explosion of communicable diseases we had eradicated in the United States only to see them make an ugly return long before Wuhan Flu.
