The disease that looks like it can be eradicated fast with less impact is whooping cough. The disease can be prevented just by the use of a vaccine. Since it has a limited existence of about days or some weeks, it can hardly weaken the immune system of an individual. After the disease gets into an individual, the vaccine can cure it quickly. The only problem is that it spreads quickly, but the merit of it is that it can also be stopped promptly.
In conclusion, the three diseases are limited to only man but spread by animals (insects). Individuals having the three conditions can undergo treatment, but some need more medical attention from professionals. Eradication is possible in the three states, but the simplest of them all is the Influenza because it can go through prevention by a vaccine hence faster and more efficient. Would recommend prevention of the diseases instead of cure.
