If you want free national publicity there must be easier ways.

Like Tetanus or Norovirus.

Agreed.
Flying Foxes are so darn cute! If I could have one as a pet I would.
Alas, the videos will have to suffice.

No need for shots, just put them in a coma, administer ribavirin and amantadine, and wait for their bodies to develop antibodies. 

:-D

I was going to post another video of one of them chowing down on banana.

Their gd squeeks are so gd endearing.
I believe they're rewriting our neural code to possibly to species survival levels.
Where we put their needs above our own.

But then, I'm just a cranky old man.
Who harrumphs a lot.

The immune system of bats is drastically different from basically any mammalian species. They are immune to practically everything but take it all in which makes them perfect reservoirs for you name it.

The bats got infected from the Pandas, is what I can only assume to be the talking point here.

Oh heck, rabid.

If you ever find a bat down, call your local wildlife experts.
Healthy bats don't just decide to land on the ground in your backyard.

The big problem with rabies is that it has a near 100% mortality rare after the first onset of any symptoms at all.

You can get rabies vaccine shots before symptoms show up, but if you miss that window you're basically out of luck. The only treatment at that point is the Milwaukee protocol, and it is very much a last-ditch long shot, with only a handful of survivors.

You've got to tell us what this Milwaukee Protocol is...

Does it involve copious quantities of Old Milwaukee and lots of vomiting? If so, I may be immune to rabies from my cheap drinking at a young age.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rabies#​A​fter_onset
"The Milwaukee Protocol initially came into use in 2003, when it was tested on Jeanna Giese. Subsequently, the teenager from Wisconsin, USA became the first person known to have survived rabies without preventive treatments before symptom onset. The basic idea is to put a person into a chemically induced coma and to use antiviral medications to prevent fatal dysautonomia. However, the overall protocol is complex. The sixth version of the protocol last updated in 2018 consists of 17 pages with 22 steps of treatment, detailed monitoring and a timeline of expected complications"
