Hi anon, Im never too far away!
But thank you.
Its good to see you keeping things on the move, Im only the OP which means that I may have started this thread, it belongs to all contributors and readers, but thank you for the recognition.
In relation to the above "Bovine" ie cattle research article.
I understand that such research may be of use, but it puzzles me a little that researchers havent concentrated more on bird to pig transmission.
I believe that this will eventually be the most likely transition to mammals, as this is the most traditional farming practices throughout Asia, and the most common crossovers have been through these animal associations that I understand to have facitilated previous viral outbreaks.
Egypt on the other hand may well be a very different situation, given the religous attitudes towards pigs, their populations in that region would be expected to be quite limited.
Whereas in Asia and in particular India, where cattle are religously respected the situations are reversed.
