Scientists claimed victory over rinderpest

Today I listened to VOA news and know that scientists finally claimed victory over rinderpest, which killed cattle in swift and often in total, and caused severe famines.  Rinderpest is only the second disease besides smallpox to be found nowhere on earth but frozen away in a few laboratory vials, making the world a little safer for cattles as well as for the people who depend on them.
