The packaged “salad” of cut up lettuce leaves was found to contain a dead bat.
“Due to the animal’s decayed condition, the CDC couldn’t immediately rule out whether this particular bat carried rabies, but recommended the two people who ate the contaminated salad receive treatment for the disease.” said the article at NPR.
Seems odd that they could not determine if it had rabies “due to it’s condition” when it’s also claimed by them that there is no test for rabies.
So rabies is both a virus and a disease? This is said like, “rabies causes rabies”.
HIV causes disease called AIDS so they say zillions of times now, not HIV causes HIV.
Flu causes flu?
HIV causes flu, not flu causes flu. We would never say flu causes flu so how is it that rabies causes rabies.
HIV causes flu. Human Influenza Virus causes flu.
Or was it all the crap we ate over the holidays with alcohol and the cold affecting how high the body furnace has to heat to stay warm while being provided motor oil for fuel was what caused the flu.
AIDS – Alcohol Inserted Directly Systemically
HIV – Hucksteritis Infecting Virology
If these rabies carriers were baseball players we would call them baseball bats and the CDC would claim that baseball bats caused baseball bats.
