How Do You Get Small Pox and How it was spread
You can spread Smallpox by contact with an infected person. Usually it is when you have long face-to-face contact with the infected person to spread smallpox. Another way to spread smallpox is by direct contact with infected body fluids or contaminated objects.

Symptoms Of Small Pox
Symptoms of small box usually appear 7 to 17 days after being infected. With the first few days (or weeks) you will feel and look fine and healthy and cannot infect anyone else. Some of the symptoms are like the flu so you must be careful. You may experience
- Discomfort all over
- Severe Tiredness
- Back Pain
A few days after you start showing symptoms you will get flat red spots on you face, hands, and forearms, later on will will see them on your butt. A few days later they will turn into small blisters and the liquid in the puss turns into puss, afterthat scabs form and fall off leaving deep scars
Steps To Prevent Small Pox
One of the most effective ways to prevent smallpox is the smallpox vaccination. If you get the vaccination before exposed it will protect you. If you get it three days after exposure it can still prevent the severity of smallpox for most people.
People who have/had smallpox should be kept in isolation so the people have not been effected can stay healthy.
