Statista dossier on the history of smallpox

This dossier presents a range of statistics relating to smallpox. In past centuries, smallpox was one of the most widespread and lethal viruses in the world, and its elimination in nature is one of humanities crowning achievements. The smallpox dossier includes data relating to the pre-vaccination era, the impact of vaccination and its implementation, and the eventual eradication of the disease.
