ŒAfter several stays of execution, the smallpox virus,
one of the biggest killers in history, is back on death row.¹
(NY Times, January 25, 1996)

We would like to hear you opinion about the recommendation
of the governing board of the World Health Organization
that the last two remaining stocks of the smallpox virus,
in Russia and the United States, be destroyed by June 30, 1999.

Thanking you in advance,
