Bat Virome UPSC NOTE


  • Bat virome, collection of viruses that can infect bats

  • Bats are known to host a wide variety of viruses, including some that can cause serious diseases in humans, such as Ebola, Nipah, and SARS-CoV-2.

  • The bat virome is of particular interest to scientists because bats are thought to be a reservoir for many emerging infectious diseases. 

  • This means that bats can carry viruses without getting sick themselves, but these viruses can be transmitted to other animals, including humans.

  • One of the reasons why bats are so susceptible to viruses is because they have a number of unique biological features. 

  • Bats have a high body temperature, which can help viruses to replicate more quickly. 

  • Bats live in large colonies, which can facilitate the spread of viruses.

  • Scientists are still learning about the bat virome and how it poses a risk to human health. 

Points to keep in mind about the bat virome:

  • Bats are the only mammals that can fly

  • Travel long distances, and spread viruses.

  • Bats have a very long lifespan for their size

  • They can carry viruses for many years, which can increase the risk of transmission to other animals.

  • Bats have a unique immune system that allows to tolerate many viruses without getting sick.
