    Inoculation was sometimes used to prevent smallpox but basically either you lived or you died. Most survived chickenpox & measles but there were those who died or were left scarred or with damage to the vision or nervous system. Malaria was a disease of the tropics and is found in parts of Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Central and South America, Hispaniola, and Oceania. Mostly people died.

    The 1600s were in the 17th century & the 1700s were in the 18th century. Do some online research.
