Description

Excerpt from Twenty-Fifth Annual Report of the State Board of Health of the State of Ohio: For the Year Ending December 31, 1910 The law authorized council to appoint boards Of health with author ity to enforce quarantine measures for the prevention Of dangerous dis eases, and to abate nuisances, but in only a few cities and villages, about 45 or 50, had this been done. NO one had authority to act in the town ship, except in smallpox the trustees had certain powers. Consumption was almost universally regarded as an inherited dis ease, and little or no effort was made for its prevention. Even diphtheria was still considered as a non - communicable disease by many members Of the medical profession, and membranous croup was quite generally considered as a distinct affection requiring no preventive measures. The people in a general way knew that impure water was a cause of disease, but took scant heed Of the necessity for protecting the sources from which it came. NO community had undertaken to purify the water it drank, nor the sewage which it turned into the stream from which its water supply was taken.
