One of humanity’s greatest triumphs is the eradication of smallpox. It happened because public health heroes conquered social stigma, local politics, and much more with an unwavering determination to achieve what many scientists thought was impossible. EPIDEMIC Season Two: “Eradicating Smallpox” explores this remarkable triumph and uncovers striking parallels and contrasts to recent history in the shadows of the covid-19 pandemic.
