Never heard about vaccines for SARS, MERS, and H1N1 and I certainly didn't get the vaccine. But those pandemics ended somehow without lockdowns, quarantines, vaccinatinos, or contact tracing. What gives?
Same reactions 100 years laterThe quarantine efforts were met with some opposition. Quarantine was unpopular among doctors, who often protested Health Officials efforts to quarantine houses. According to The Oregonian, "[half] a dozen doctors called at the City Health Bureau during the day and attempted to explain that some of their 'flu' cases were tonsillitis, colds, or something else that is not on the list of quarantinable disease."
In January 1919, the Portland City Council attempted to pass an emergency clause requiring flu masks in public. For an emergency clause to pass, it had to be approved by all City Council Members. However, the clause requiring masks was blocked by City Commissioner Mann, as well as many "drugless healers". Attorney W. T. Vaughn called the clause unconstitutional, saying that "This is class legislation and nothing else. [Doctors] admit that they know nothing of the disease, but are attempting to muzzle us like a pack of hydrophobia dogs." The ensuing debate lasted for nearly two hours, and the legislation did not pass.
OK, but you mean a quarantine only of those infected, rather than a nationwide quarantine.There were definitely quarantines during the Spanish flu outbreak, you can google it yourself, here's an example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1918_Spanish_flu_quarantine_in_Portland,_Oregon
