Smallpox

Smallpox is an acute contagious disease caused by the variola virus, a member of the orthopoxvirus family. Smallpox is transmitted from person to person via infective droplets during close contact with infected symptomatic people. A vaccine administered up to 3 days after exposure provides protective immunity and prevents infection and lessening of the severity of the disease.
