The last person on earth to contract smallpox!!
« on: March 29, 2008, 08:46:31 PM »
"One of the 10 000 Somali volunteers and health workers is Ali Mao Moallim, who – more than 30 years ago on 26 October 1977 – became the last person on earth to contract smallpox. Over the past few years, working with WHO, he has travelled extensively throughout Somalia to immunize children against polio and foster community engagement during immunization campaigns. "Somalia was the last country with smallpox. I wanted to help ensure that we would not be the last place with polio too," he said."

This information was revealed by WHO in their latest news release.
