What Is Quarantine? || Kalkine Media

The word quarantine became a buzzword after the breakdown of the COVID – 19 pandemics. Quarantine word is derived from ‘quarantena’, which is an Italian word. It stands for ‘forty days.’ The quarantine can be defined as a situation under which a person who has arrived from a place exposed to infectious diseases is placed in isolation.

The person kept in isolation may or may not be exposed to the disease or infection. They might be infected and show the symptoms later. Therefore, to protect the interest of the larger population, people are kept in an isolated place.
