In brief: Rabies virus

No it cannot be killed by drinking water. If there is any animal bite and risk of rabies, you need to go right away to the emergency room to receive a series of vaccination and wound care.

Even if you have not knowledgeably been bitten, if you have in any way been around bats it might be a good idea to do the same thing suggested by Dr. Baltagi. She knows her stuff.
