OK assure me. A naturally occurring virus that evolved into small pox doesn't exist and cannot exist again particularly when we have not been vaccinating populations for it since 1986.


How would you explain the extremely high mortality rate with "chicken pox" normally 0.0014% but 30% in the reported outbreak ?

One thing I've wondered about, and have never seen covered anywhere...

What about these frozen bodies they find in the Alps or Himalayas that have been on ice for hundreds of years. Can a virus like smallpox that's been frozen for that long infect someone who handles the body? I know most virus can't live long outside of a host, but if it's been frozen then what?

If you want assurance, dont come to a survivalist forum, use some peer-reviewed articles and Web sites.

I didnt even read the article yet but a couple of things come to mind:

1) It could be a particularly vulnerable population: never had much contact with CP before; many young, old, malnourished, otherwise compromised people.

2) It could be an unusually virulent strain....viruses can gain and lose virulence as they exploit different populations.
