NSW Health warns of deadly viruses during bat breeding season

As the bat breeding season begins, NSW Health is warning people not to approach or handle injured bats and flying foxes to avoid exposure to the potentially fatal Australia Bat lyssavirus, which is closely related to the rabies virus.

So far this year, more than 400 NSW residents have been given rabies post exposure prophylaxis following high-risk exposure to potentially infected animals.
