Have you ever wondered whether other people have been in quarantine like us?
Hi, my speech is about quarantine!
Quarantine comes from the word quarnante or the Italian word cuarenta journo which means 40 days.
In the 14th century
When ships came from cities with virus And they wanted to stop in Venice the police would make them stay in the boat for 40 days before they were allowed to come off the boat.
They did this so that anyone on the boat who had the virus from the Previous city would not give the virus to anyone in Venice.
After 40 days the virus would have died off the ship
Quarantine in the bible
Another interesting fact I learned is that even the Bible talks about quarantine.
When the Jews were leaving Egypt to go to Israel, God told Moses that everyone with Leprosy had to be treated carefully and distanced from everyone else.
He said their “clothes shall be rent, their heads shall be left bare, they shall cover their upper lips, and call out “Unclean unclean”. They must also sleep outside of camp”.
That meant that they needed to keep their clothes separate from everyone else’s, they needed to shave their heads, cover their mouths with a mask, tell everybody that they were sick, and sleep far away from everyone else.
Other than shaving our heads which we aren’t doing, these are all of the same; things that we are doing today to fight Coronavirus.
My life in quarantine. I mostly just do school I basically just sit in my room and do so so much school. I don’t get to see my family much because we’re always doing Arun Singh. we always FaceTime are relatives and once in a while we go and see my zaityat Hillel Lodge. Sometimes I go on a distance walk with my friend or I’ll go on walks by myself I’ve walked an hour and a half.
Sometimes I just walk half an hour but I have lots of fun doing it and it’s good exercise.
Something that’s also cute is in that the Disney movie Rapunzel Rapunzel is quarantined in her house for 18 years also her kingdom is called Corona!
