A Hantavirus in a Vietnamese Bat?

Maybe. Just maybe. My colleague here at OUCRU has some preliminary results indicating that a hantavirus, most commonly found in rodents and able to cause haemorrhagic diseases (brutal!), is present within the Viet Nam Bat population.

We’ll need clarification. But bloody hell – this is exciting. A hantavirus in a Bat is a RARE find.

Nice work Meredith. More on this later!
