How clean were the cities of the West, China and Japan in comparison to each other in the early modern period (1400-1800)?

How did their populations compare in personal hygiene and public sanitation?

It varied hugely in that time period. Probably narrow it down as there were fairly clean cities and quite dirty cities in that period and also it is relative to now everything was dirty.
