    I'm trying to figure out why they don't eat the bat when they're done testing it. I mean, it passed the test, right? Or they wouldn't be releasing it, right?

    I imagine from which is half eaten at night by bats gets taken by villagers the next morning to eat or make juice these people come (infected) carry then the virus in their bodies and the mosquito comes bites the carrier and spreads it to other living creatures or humans. I see so often in Indonesia the bats at night spitting out the pips or stones of fruit, which is in a way good for the Eco system, but others including humans feed on the rest saying it will make no harm. I strongly recommend not to eat fruit that looks like it has been eaten or bitten by an animal, also I would not recommend drinking fresh fruit juice at market places unless it has been heat treated before consumption.
