Resistance to another pandemic: Bat hunting!

Mummara experiments of scientists

RIO DE JANEIRO: The corona virus that is plaguing the world is thought to have originated from bats. However, despite the lack of conclusive evidence so far, scientists have stepped in to prevent another pandemic. For this, a special mission was undertaken to ‘catch the bats..to help prevent another global epidemic’. Scientists at the Fiocruz Institute have begun to catch bats and search for them. Are there any other dangerous viruses in bats? With the latest study launched with the aim of finding out that another pandemic is expected to be detected early without an outbreak.

The world is learning lessons from the fusion that the corona is creating worldwide. It has already been proven that if such a virus emerges in one place, it will infect the whole world in a short period of time. In this context, scientists have carried out a number of researches aimed at identifying other deadly viruses that are spreading rapidly in humans, and releasing that information from time to time. As part of this, scientists in Brazil are focusing on bats that cause dangerous viruses.

Abnormal immunity ..
‘The secret is that bats have extraordinary immunity. That makes them more capable of flying, ”said Raina Florite, an epidemiologist at Montana State University. They have a special system to withstand the pressure of jumping like this. In addition, their metabolic rate increases by sixteen times during that time. Raina fluoride believes that all of these factors provide additional protection for bats from pathogens. According to McMaster, a virologist at the University of Canada, the latest research will help them understand the secrets of their immunity and the habitat of viruses in them. The researchers said that their research was performed experimentally with infected people and that those experiments did not show a mutation in the virus but did say that “such mutations cannot be ruled out.

Research on viruses in India too ..
The nations of the world have been researching for a long time to identify and research viruses from time to time. However, they are falling into disrepair due to lack of attention and urgency in allocating funds to them. The Center has drawn up a plan to set up about 25 virus monitoring centers in India as well. A special program in 2018 called Biodiversity Human Well-Being is currently pending. However, it is likely to launch next year. Experts say that as such research continues, dangerous viruses can be detected early on.

To reduce the infection ..?
The process of killing bats is continuing in some areas in the wake of news coming in that humans are being infected with the virus. However, scientists say that attacking these is not the solution to the problem, and that at times we find ourselves in trouble. Experts believe that people are committing such acts due to myths about bats. It is clear that bats also play a key role in protecting the environment. It is said that bats in the wild are essential for eating insects that destroy other crops, such as cotton and maize. In this context, scientists suggest that the best way to prevent these diseases is for humans and livestock to have minimal contact with them.

However, research on the origins of the corona virus is ongoing. Research on bats is already underway in Thailand. However, although there is no evidence that the corona virus is transmitted from bats to bats, there are records of human-to-human transmission of the virus from bats to horses. The Handra virus was first identified in 1994. Scientists estimate that nearly 60 percent of those infected with the deadly virus die, and 75 percent of horses infected with the virus die.
