Between the years of 460 and 370 B.C there is a doctor whose name is Hypocrites and first time he finds that illness, the illness is widespread in the places that is especially that is swamp because of the fact that lots of mosquitoes’’ living on those places. And from that time to our modern era the Malaria is available on people’s lives and in the history we can see lots of people who are dying because of the Malaria for example in the years of first world war there are 5 million people who have malaria and those 5 million people’s 60.000 people die because of it.
