    Solution:

    Cowpox virus is more closely related to the smallpox virus. However, the cowpox virus caused an acute infection in the infected individual unlike the smallpox virus which was more deadly. The milkmaids exposed to the cowpox virus already gained immunity against it therefore due to this immunity the smallpox virus could not affect the milkmaids.
