Mary Mallon was born in 1869 in Cookstown Ireland. She later became a healthy carrier of Typhoid fever, and during her culinary career, she infected 22 poeple, killing 1.
In 1906, Mary was hired as a cook for a family vacation in NY, when she infectied 6/12 people
After lots of searching, researcher George Soper and doctor Baker found Mary, and told her about her condition, and that she needed to be quarantined. She reacted with great anger, lunging at them with forks and knives, then proceeding to run away to her neighbors house, where she was later found and forcefully captured.
After being taken against her will, she was brought to a far away island, where she was quarantined for 2 years, never knowing what Typhoid was or how she got it. She later sued the department during trial
"i dont have typhoid!"
In 1910 she was let go, told to never go back to cooking, but after trying and failing at other jobs, she went back to being a cook. Soon after, she infected 25 people at a Maturnity hospital, and was sent back to the island
She was kept on the island for 23 years before she had a stroke in 1932, and died 6 years later
