For thousands of years, smallpox was a terrifying disease which threatened people in every continent,

and there were epidemics which killed millions of people. It is believed that the disease began in China

and then spread slowly to the other continents. The first known victim was Rameses V, the pharaoh of

Egypt, who showed all the main symptoms of the disease including the terrible rash, and who died of it

in 1157 BC. Many doctors, over the centuries, tried to find a cure for the disease, but none succeeded.

However, in 1774, a doctor called Edward Jenner decided to investigate the belief that people who had

cowpox could not be infected with smallpox. Cowpox was a much less serious disease and hardly ever

caused any lasting problems. Jenner discovered that it was possible to protect people from smallpox

by giving them cowpox, and he began to vaccinate large numbers of people against the disease. It was

soon clear that anyone who had a vaccination was immune to smallpox. This was because humans,

when they are infected with cowpox, produce antibodies; these protect people by attacking and killing

the smallpox virus if it enters the body. Vaccination became the standard treatment for the disease

although no cure was ever found. In 1958 the World Health Organization decided to try and vaccinate

everyone in the world, and after a massive world-wide campaign, smallpox was eradicated. The last

man in the world to catch it was Ali Maow Maalin, from Merka in Somalia - and fortunately he

recovered from the disease.
