The Most Dangerous Woman in America Essay
Mary Mallon was one of the first identified healthy carriers of typhoid. It is estimated that she is
responsible for 51 confirmed cases of typhoid and three deaths. 1 Public health officials and the Mayor
of New York forced her to be quarantined on two separate occasions for a total 26 years. In
approximately 750-1,000 words address whether you believe her forced isolation was justified and
discuss the ethical implications. In your argument, you may want to elaborate on US laws regarding
quarantine and the role of immigration. Remember to think about the right of the individual vs the right
of a society to remain/maintain health and what are the legal and ethical implications for the side you
choose to support. Think about that by the time she died health officials identified more than 400 other
healthy carriers of Salmonella typhi that were not forcibly confined.1 You may also want to consider if
there are any examples of people are diseases that parallel what happened to Mary? This assignment
will be worth 30 points.
Note if you write a summary of the documentary rather than an argumentative essay, you will not
receive credit.
