Why You Shouldn’t Touch Bats

by Carl Jackson April 29, 2018

 

As Summer begins Hunter New England Health have issued a warning to the lower Mid North Coast community that they could contract potential deadly viruses if they handle bats.

Bat activity is expected to increase as we move further into summer and 2 bats from the Wingham Taree area have tested positive for Australian Bat Lyssavirus (ABL).

If you are bitten or scratched by a bat you can become infected with potentially deadly ABL, which is related to the rabies virus.

Its best to call WIRES whose workers have been vaccinated against the virus and who know what to do.

Also if you live in an area where bats are common, having your windows and doors screened will keep the bats out of your home.

For assistance from WIRES call 1300 094 737.
