Caption: Smallpox. Health worker examines a child affected by a severe smallpox rash. Large pustules (pus- filled) are seen on the back of the child. Smallpox (variola) is an acute, infectious viral disease transmitted by direct contact. Red spots develop into pea-sized pustules which scab over leaving permanent scars. Fever symptoms are typical. The disease killed up to 40% of its victims, with nephritis and pneumonia occurring as complications. In 1980, the World Health Organisation declared smallpox an extinct disease after a worldwide vaccination campaign. This photograph was taken in the 1970s in Niger, Africa.
