Smallpox could have been one of the most disastrous disease in the world..
It has an ancient lineage , the Egyptian has already been infected by it 5700 years ago, evidence ? A pharoah's mummy is infected with it's cause, variola virus..

It has an infectious rate at one infection per second in the past. And Russian doctors has find out that a person only need to inhale few of this virus and it's already lethal ...

Pox virus

God bless the world.. But no worry please , by 1979 , WHO has officially announced that smallpox has been eradicated from the face of EARTH !!

All this thanks to doctors who have been tirelessly treating every patient left in Africa by that time... as many developed country has wipe out smallpox .. Americans reported the last case in 1949 ~ Wee !!!


Brr.... All this research about smallpox is stirred by my interest on virus after studying Biodiversity ! ViVa Biodiversity !!

Hmm... I wonder whether a mutated version of smallpox may be occuring somewhere on Earth..
