Excerpt from Sanitation in Panama

The population originally feared yellow fever on account of the poverty, suffering and business depression always caused by the quarantines which had to be enforced to prevent its spread, and in time people came to associate this idea of dread with yellow fever itself. W'hen this disease was announced in a town, everybody left who could. The sick were frequently left without care, and often a great deal of cruelty and cowardice was shown. If a person escaped from an infected region and became Sick with the disease, or sick from any other cause, he was generally treated as if he were a leper, and would often be left to starve or die on the roadside.
