Persian scholar of medicine, Ibn Sina (980-1037), suspected that some diseases were spread by microorganisms; to prevent human-to-human contamination, he came up with the method of isolating people for 40 days. He called this method al-Arba'iniya (`the forty`).
Traders from Venice heard of his success and took this knowledge back to Italy. They called it 'quarantine', the forty in Italian.
