    In Aynho, a small isolated village in Northhamptonshire, incidence in a –24 smallpox epidemic was about 50% for those under 20 years of age, a cohort who probably had not had smallpox. 33 Given the far lower population density in the Hudson Bay region, it is unlikely that incidence among Native Americans was as high as this. Combining Cited by: Pox diseases are acute viral diseases that affect many animals, including people and birds. Some poxviruses also cause zoonoses. Typically, lesions of the skin and mucosae are widespread and progress from macules to papules, vesicles, and pustules before encrusting and healing.
