    You asked a very complex question. Ill to give you an answer in parts. First there is no relationship between the Nipah virus and either malaria or yellow fever. The mode of transmission of the Nipah virus from animal to animal, and from animal to human is uncertain, but appears to require close contact with contaminated tissue or body fluids from infected animals. Nipah antibodies have been detected in pigs, other domestic and wild animals. The role of species other than pigs in transmitting infection to other animals has not yet been determined. Pigs were the apparent source of infection among most human cases in the Malaysian outbreak of Nipah, but other sources, such as infected dogs and cats, cannot be excluded. Human-to-human transmission of Nipah virus has not been reported.Malaria is a serious and sometimes fatal disease caused by a parasite (Plasmodium falciparum), that commonly infects a certain type of mosquito which feeds on humans. Malaria is not a virus. Usually, people get malaria by being bitten by an infective female Anopheles mosquito. Only Anopheles mosquitoes can transmit malaria and they must have been infected through a previous blood meal taken on an infected personAnimals can also get malaria, but animal malaria cannot spread to humans, and human malaria cannot spread to animals.Yellow fever is an acute viral disease. It is an important cause of hemorrhagic illness in many African and South American countries despite existence of an effective vaccine. The yellow refers to the jaundice symptoms that affect some patients. Thus the name yellow fever.Yellow fever occurs in several known animals, all species of monkeys and several small mammals. It has been found in camels, cattle, sheep, and goats. I could find no reference to pigs, but considering all of the other animals I would guess pigs could catch yellow fever as well. It is spread form person to person and from animals to people by the same mosquito that spreads malaria.
