3. The origins of public health into the 1700s Abstract Public health cannot be understood without a knowledge of its history. ‘The origins of public health into the 1700s’ considers the earliest roots of public health, 4,000 years ago in northern India. Going back centuries highlights clear continuities between public health responses in the deeper past and in more recent times. These centuries show the development of public health responses as part of the armoury of the modernizing state, in association with military and economic needs; punitive responses to epidemic disease including the practice of quarantine; the association between health

1. Plague Abstract Yersinia pestis, transmitted by the bite of an infected flea. ‘Plague’ identifies three main periods of the pandemic. It first appeared in the sixth century CE with several epidemics in Europe and the Near East lasting until the end of the eight century. The second pandemic—the Black Death—began in 1347 and killed up to half of the continent’s population. The last European outbreak was in Russia in 1770. The third pandemic began in China in 1890 and spread rapidly around the Pacific world. Improved sanitation, isolation, and new antibiotics help, but the plague still exists today.
