Sudden start of something unpleasant is called as “Outbreak”.
“Epidemic” is an outbreak of a disease and affects large number of people and animals at the same time.
“Pandemic” is used to describe a disease that affects a greater geography i.e countries or entire world.
History of pandemic and Isolation technique

Today the medical science and technology is said to be at its peak of mankind. But unfortunately there is no medicine for this pandemic yet and the research for vaccine is under progress in almost all the countries. Even if it is invented it will take a year to move from lab scale to production scale and reach the market and public usage.

“Quarantine” started in the history of mankind to contain the ‘Black Death Pandemic” in 14-15th Century in Europe.

Art of choosing a hill station and a property there
Is all the hill stations will suit for this purpose?
No. For example, Ooty is more commercialized with high population density where this purpose will be lost. Kodaikanal and many other small hill stations like Gudalur, Kothagiri, Connor and hill villages across Western Ghats can suit.
Similarly all the property in Kodaikanal may not also suit for it, each one is unique and fits for achieving a specific purpose or goal like social status, stress relief, investment, beat the heat, self isolation, etc or combination of them.
