Some of these are not viruses (Anthrax, Cholera, Malaria, Typhoid), so should I ignore these as trick questions?
Also, my answer would depend on what is meant by 'deadly'. Deadly could be total killed by or how likely a person is to die if they get it also how quickly they die. HIV doesn't tend to kill people very quickly, but it's total death count is pretty high. Ebola often kills and does it quickly, but total deaths isn't that high.
I suspect that many of the 'fever' (including Dengue) answers have high death counts since they've been around for a long time.
It's odd that influenza was left off this list as it's common and kills tons of people, at times millions in a year.

My thought is, and it's very scary, but with science as it is today, I think possibly these things are grown in labs. But, I don't know the unhealthy habits in these other third world countries.

Yep they are grown in labs at the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta Georgia and other labs as well, if these labs get breached hundreds of people could die such as a biological attack? These are very deadly to the human population

There is a lack of conscience in today's world. It appears money/world control is truly at the root of all evil.

I do believe that filthy living conditions can cause disease, however. I personally feel some of the scientists of today are perhaps of the enemy.

Define 'deadly': has killed the most people, has the highest fatality rate if you catch it, or what?
