not famous and unknown to the world.So not only thinkers, but most people died because they did not have real healthy place to live in, BUT they knew not better, since the general health level was still very low.

In the ages where these authors lived, ordinary people died of pneumonia and TBC too, but their death were never mentioned, because they are just ordinary persons,
