Mommy, I'm bored of COVID now, I want a new pandemic.


Question...
Why the flying mongoose is one out of the two authorised Smallpox viruses in the world in Russia?
Russia, that really trustworthy place that would never, ever poison people with a biological or chemical agent ever.
Was it part of some Cold War bargaining agreement, like,
"Here's a deal, we've got some Smallpox in Atlanta so in order to make things fair, you need some in Russia. We've got nukes, you've got nukes, we've got Smallpox, you've got Smallpox."

The Russians played a huge role in developing the vaccine in a form suitable for use in developing countries.

That's why they kept the virus.
