|By 1833 cholera was rife in Italy and there were two very different ways of dealing with this epidemic.
Isolate the infected area, order quarantine for those from those areas and create hospitals just for those afflicted with the disease. This method wasn?t much appreciated by businesses, both large and small as it affected their profits.? (Sound familiar?)
