Think back almost 30 years, when AIDS was a new and terrifying disease. Had we treated it as a highly infectious disease and used the then current laws, it is entirely possible that we could have reduced the death toll, and drastically reduced its terrible effects on hemophiliacs and surgical patients.
But politics trumps all, and the medical establishment, led by the esteemed liar Anthony Fauci chose to treat AIDS as a political tool rather than the deadly disease it was, preferring to pay obeisance to favored groups (Homosexual Inc.) rather than do the contact tracing and quarantine that would have saved lives.
Fast forward to today, and the police state has a newfound respect for enforcing public health mandates and creating new and absolutely terrifying ones, even though the current threat is a ubiquitous virus whose transmission is almost certainly not restricted to a particular behavior, and whose death rate is nowhere near that of AIDS (which was close to 100%).

This is a bill up for consideration in New York State in regards to COVID-19.

But of course this has nothing to do with public health and everything to do with the naked exercise of state power and the subjugation of political enemies.
