People still die of measles. Thousands of people in the USA and something
like hundreds of thousands worldwide.

Apparently the great destroyer in eastern North America was smallpox. That
disease could kill up to 1/3 of Europeans, but among the Native Americans it
was sometimes "the entire village died."
