Smallpox, measles, influenza and bubonic plague are just a few of the deadliest diseases brought to the Americas by the Europeans. These diseases are considered crowd diseases and they need heavily populated areas in order to thrive. If the area is less densely populated the viruses will die out quickly and have little effect on the general population of a given area. Smallpox enters the body through the nose or mouth and travels to the lungs. In the lungs it multiplies and spreads to the lymphatic system, creating blisters on the skin filled with smallpox DNA and they are highly infectious if popped (Prevention, 2016).
