People in countries that have been devastated by Ebola are becoming desperate. Many of them have turned to an ancient remedy: quarantine. Quarantine was used during the Medieval Ages to try and stifle the bubonic plague. Countries are now isolating Ebola hot zones and hoping that this will contain the outbreak. Some people are critical of this approach, saying that infections could still spread from place to place and that people inside the quarantine zone might try to flee. Since places have been put under quarantine, at least 652 more people have contracted Ebola.
