One response to “Save the Smallpox?

  1. When i think about the outbreak happening again, i feel we need to save this virus for being able to come up with better vaccines.
    But then if we already know the genetic sequence and can re-construct then why keep the virus. There could also be a possibility of the virus escape from the secure facilities in US and Russia.
    I say the virus should be destroyed to avoid any mutations and catastrophe. For research purposes we already have the genome of the virus.
