Experts on infectious diseases Thursday warned people to stay away from bats worldwide after the recent death of an eight-year-old boy bitten in Australia.The boy last month became the third person in the country to die of Australian bat lyssavirus (ABLV), for which there is no effective treatment.
"ABLV has proved fatal in all cases reported to date. There is a need for increased public awareness of the risk associated with bat contact," Francis said. "In short, people should stay away from bats."
Death held out a hand. I WANT, he said, A BOOK ABOUT THE DANGEROUS CREATURES OF FOURECKS-Albert looked up and dived for cover, receiving only mild bruising because he had the foresight to curl into a ball.After a while Death, his voice a little muffled, said: ALBERT, I WOULD BE SO GRATEFUL IF YOU COULD GIVE ME A HAND HERE.Albert scrambled up and pulled at some of the huge volumes, finally dislodging enough of them for his master to clamber free.HMM... Death picked up a book at random and read the cover. "DANGEROUS MAMMALS, REPTILES, AMPHIBIANS, BIRDS, FISH, JELLYFISH, INSECTS, SPIDERS, CRUSTACEANS, GRASSES, TREES, MOSSES, AND LICHENS OF TERROR INCOGNITA, " he read. His gaze moved down the spine. VOLUME 29C, he added. OH. PART THREE, I SEE.He glanced up at the listening shelves. POSSIBLY IT WOULD BE SIMPLER IF I ASKED FOR A LIST OF THE HARMLESS CREATURES OF THE AFORESAID CONTINENT?They waited.IT WOULD APPEAR THAT-"No, wait master. Here it comes."Albert pointed to something white zigzagging lazily through the air. Finally Death reached up an caught the single sheet of paper.He read it carefully and then turned it over briefly just in case anything was written on the other side."May I?" said Albert. Death handed him the paper."'Some of the sheep, '" Albert read aloud. "Oh, well. Maybe a week at the seaside'd be better, then."WHAT AN INTRIGUING PLACE, said Death. SADDLE UP THE HORSE, ALBERT. I FEEL SURE I'M GOING TO BE NEEDED.
