  • The orthopoxvirus genus also includes the variola virus (which causes smallpox), vaccinia virus (used in the smallpox vaccine), and the cowpox virus.
  • It was first discovered in the year 1958. It is widely distributed near the tropical rainforests of Central and West Africa.
  • Transmission from animal to human can occur through direct contact with blood, bodily fluids, or cutaneous or mucosal wounds from infected animals.
