The case occurred on 16 October 1975, when the two-year old Banu was living in the village of Kuralia on Bhola Island in the Bangladesh district of Barisal. Her case was reported to eradication team authorities by an eight-year old girl, Bilkisunnessa, who was paid 250 taka.[1] In 2000, she was photographed with four children and a man who was apparently her husband.[2] Smallpox (also known by the Latin names Variola or Variola vera) was a highly contagious viral disease unique to humans. ...
