This must be Romanian custom?!
We all know that people with leprosy were sent to a "Lepers colony" if there was one close by, or they had to live in the forest huts outside of the villages. Their food was brought to them to a designated place, where they did pick it up after it was delivered, to avoid all contacts.
We also know that during the 'Military Zone" between Austrian and Hungarian Empire and the Land of the Turks, whoever wanted to travel from there to Austria or Hungary had to stay 42 days in isolation wards. In order not to bring Plaque, Cholera, etc. to the western part of Europe.
But nowhere did I read that the ill people were locked up until they died.
I did ask this question and he said, it took place until the time cures for the particular disease were available, probably before penicillian. Had you ever heard of such a thing?
