Maybe you should read up on the influenza viruses that come out of China, as well.... Apparently, these viruses jump from species to species because of the way the animals are kept - pigs living too close to chickens all living too close to humans. Pigs are usually the intermediate host for the viruses that originate in birds & "jump" to humans. Anyway, that's all I remember from my microbiology short course a few years back.
