Before declaring it eradicated?
For there's a fresh spurt,
Warns the State health alert,
Of smallpox (or something related)!

Indian Express, Kolkata Newsline 01/06/07: The state government has issued a smallpox alert throughout West Bengal after receiving preliminary unconfirmed reports of the disease from areas bordering Bangladesh and Myanmar. Get the story here
