A member asked:

Is eating a bat eaten fruit a source of rabies? is it true that the virus may survive only when transferred to a living animal?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Rabies: The mechanism of transmission you asked about is very unlikely. The most common method is by the transfer of infected saliva by the bite of a rabid animal. A second means for the transfer of rabies is through the ingestion of infected meat from an infected animal. The virus needs an animal host for survival.
