Can people use the same quarantine facilities for non-covid cases like tuberculosis and bubonic plague ?

Hospitals and other healthcare facilities that have quarantine capability do not mix such patients together. The days of the TB sanitarium or the plague house are gone. Each patient is quarantined alone, unable to spread whatever disease they have.
A ward may be created to treat many patients needing quarantine more efficiently, a series of quarantine rooms close together.

There aren't any "quarantine facilities" anymore, not since like the 1940s. But the idea of totally isolating coronavirus patients away from the general population is not without merit. It's how some countries such as China & South Korea are dealing with the pandemic.

So where is this bubonic plaque? It died out last century. TB is now managed with antibiotics.

The problem with covid is that it is incurable. Most sufferers have only mild symptoms, but some develop viral pneumonia and some of them die. Tuberculosis and bubonic plague can be cured with antibiotics. If you put sufferers from all three in the same facility, they could cross-infect. On the other hand, you might find that catching plague cures coronavirus and you can then use antibiotics. There's something for you to research for your PhD.
