but there is no bird-reservoir for mammalean flu-A either, no H3N2,H1N1,equine H3N8.
So these can theoretically be eradicated too (by vaccination?).
But other strains of flu-A (H5N1,H9N2,H7..)may emerge from birds in future…
H3N2, if eradicated in humans,swine is unlikely to emerge and
transfer from birds again (IMO)
I did an internship in Munich.. gorgeous little city isn't it, so quaint. 🙂
