There is a recessive allele for a gene that made people more susceptible than normal to smallpox. Only homoxygous recessive people display this trait. Heterozygotes are indistinguishable from homozygous dominant people, with normal resistance to smallpox. After smallpox was eliminated, what happened to the allele frequency for the allele that caused smallpox susceptibility?

The allele remained at a constant frequency in the gene pool.
