Vaccinia Vs. Variola[edit]


In the "Cause" section, the article states "The Camelpox Virus (CMPV) that causes Camelpox is an Orthopoxvirus that is very closely related to the Vaccinia virus that causes Smallpox", but that isn't right is it? The smallpox virus is Variola not Vaccinia. The two are related, but Vaccinia is a variant of the Cowpox virus not the Smallpox virus. Should this be changed to read "...is very closely related to the Variola virus that causes Smallpox"? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lsisson (talkcontribs) 02:48, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
