Quarantine (Italian quarantena "a forty day period") is the isolation of a person or animal who has a disease (or is suspected of having a disease) in order to prevent further spread of the disease.[1] It originates from the third codex of Mosaic Law. (Leviticus 13:54: "Then the priest shall command that they wash the thing wherein the plague is, and he shall shut it up seven days more.")
