In regards to the article at Concurring Opinions, I actually think that's a decent decision. I'd need to read up on Swiss law to determine if it is justified by their judicial rules and legal precedents, but I really don't see anything wrong with legally requiring the infected to take reasonable steps not to infect others. We punish people for driving without glasses when they have bad eye-sight and a bevy of other acts of gross irresponsibility; how is this any different?
