She made the point of maybe Mary not understanding that she was a healthy carrier of the disease and touched on the fact that so many people of that time were uneducated about the catching and spreading of typhoid.

With the use of heavy dramatic irony, those that encounter the story experience frustration as the result of many innocent townsfolk being condemned to death.
