Is smallpox making a comeback?
I heard somewhere that somebody told me that smallpox was making a comeback and I don't know if it's true or not, I heard somewhere that it was making a comeback!

It's another climate change scare tactic. They say it may come back if the Siberian permafrost thaws but I have my doubts. Every time they speak of climate change it's always might, maybe or it could happen, nobody knows for sure.

Smallpox was totally eradicated worldwide in the wild back in the 1960s. Samples were kept in very secure conditions in 2 or 3 labs around the world.
The only way that smallpox could come back s if one of the countries with lab samples deliberately broke international law and released it into the wild.

Officially it's eradicated, and two or three labs in the world still have some stored.

Its been eradicated for some 40 years now (however I'm sure it could come back under some circumstances)
