Malaria!!!

In 2015, there were an estimated 214 million malaria cases and some 438,000 malaria deaths. Since 2000, malaria mortality rates have fallen globally by 60%. The word ‘malaria’ comes from Italian and literally translates to ‘bad air’ as the disease was associated with swampy areas where the air smelled bad. (http://bit.ly/1fDL2Wg, http://bit.ly/2dHpAcL)
