Well just last month, a disturbing video that attracted over a hundred thousand views surfaced online, in the video, lifeless bats were seen lying around in some places in India.
According to Singh, no traces of the coronavirus or rabies were found in the dead bats.
It is internationally accepted that bats have high immunity level and are not affected by any pathogen - virus or bacteria - though they can be carriers of the virus," he said. "In the samples, we have not found any virus or bacteria load that could be the reason for their deaths."
And while bats remain a significant factor in the ecosystem, a veterinary research institute speculated that the bats may have died due to too much heat that resulted in serious brain damages. Bats are very sensitive to heat they said, and the increase in temperature in the northern India could be the cause.
Divisional Forest Officer (DFO) Avinash Kumar said that the reason behind the death of bats can be clearly stated once they get a report from IVRI.
With the believe that the coronavirus started with bats, the question is whether we should prepare for another global viral outbreak.
With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we can't cope with another outbreak anywhere in the world.
We hope and pray it's nothing more than usual.
