  • 5. 
    Variolation is inoculation as a method of purposefully infecting aperson with smallpox (Variola virus) in a controlled manner so as tominimize the severity of the infection and also to induce immunityagainst further infection. Whats incorrect
    • A. 

      Was used in 8th century China

    • B. 

      Was used in 8th century India

    • C. 

      Was the live virus from open lesions of infected person, high morbidity, even mortality

    • D. 

      Discovered later the scabs of mildly infected person improved safety of intentional inoculation

    • E. 

      Was in China in 10th century

  • 6. 
    In 1796, Edward Jenner introduced the safer method ofinoculation with the cowpox (Vaccinia) virus, a non-fatalvirus that also induced immunity to smallpox.Inoculated an 8 yr old boy, exposed to smallpox and lived!This led to smallpox inoculation falling into disuse andeventually being banned in England in 1840.1977 last reported case thanks to WHO worldwide immunization 1967* Herd immunity means if a few are not vaccinated, they are still safe because no one around them can get it or has it.
