Using stochastic computer simulations, we studied the spread of smallpox and possible intervention schemes. It could be shown that (for a wide range of parameters) smallpox outbreaks can be controlled by contact tracing and case isolation.

We provide a publicly accessible simulation program which allows to investigate how effectively a smallpox outbreak can be controlled by case isolation and contact tracing alone.
