Il-Prostituzzjoni f’Malta – Edward Attard


“An interesting fact is that when the French were blockaded in the city of Valletta, they used the locals who were infected with venereal disease as a weapon. This they did by banishing the prostitutes  from the city with the intention that these would spread their illness amongst those who had risen up against the French.”
