Bats are natural reservoir hosts and sources of infection of several microorganisms, many of which cause severe human diseases. Because of contact between bats and other animals, including humans, the possibility exists for additional interspecies transmissions and resulting disease outbreaks.

Abstract

Bats are natural reservoir hosts and sources of infection of several microorganisms, many of which cause severe human diseases.
