    if you were bit by a bat, you'd know. even then, the chance it would have rabies is slim to none. stop overreacting, you absolute woman.

        You didn't.
        Third world countries are still primitive because they are too busy worrying about being macho to be smart.
        The Anon you replied to is the sort who would die from an infection in the past or in primitive places over a simple wound because "it's just a scratch".

        Speaking of scratches. Rabies can be transmitted through a scratch as well as a bite. The SMART thing is to not take a chance. You did the smart thing.

                Man, even when you have money the medical care is shit too. You have to shop around to get real treatment otherwise you just become a cash cow for a profit-driven industry who's revenue is dependent on not actually providing a cure when it can get away with it.

      the way you test animal is to dissect its brain, if it has rabies, you killed a rabid animal, if it didnt, you just kill an animal for no real reason. also shit gets expensive because of insurance companies

      nothing happens to the thousands of dumbasses who are in OP's situation and don't get the vaccine
      Why don't homeless people die of rabies, at least not in America?

      For the record I'll say the wildlife b***h who came to OP's house is a dumbass, doctors are dumbasses about this subject, I'm not going full VIRUSES DON'T EXIST but the panic ITT is probably freaking out a lot of people who are susceptible to health anxiety

      59000 deaths annually, most of which is africa and asia, which i guess is india because they have a wild dog problem. anyway, the reason why america doesnt really have a lot of deaths is because we dont have packs of feral dogs running around and bats only live in rural areas, so homeless people arent going to come into contact with them almost at all

    Do not touch wild bats with your bare hands, or get near them. If you need to move them from inside a structure, call a professional and keep a distance until they arrive, or ideally vacate the structure. If you need to remove a wild animal, wear protective equipment like heavy bite-proof gloves, and use tools which give you distance from the animal etc and to get the animal outside.

    If you were exposed to and fluid from the bat, like saliva, blood, etc especially from a bite, you should go immediately and see a medical professional and tell them what happened, and that you think you may have been exposed to rabies.

    Rabies is treatable, but only in it's earliest stages, and it can take years (too late) to fully progress.

    If you have an infestation, you probably need to either board up the holes they can entry your interior from, or contact your landlord/homeowner asap so that can happen.

            Apparently that's the post rabies exposure price, getting the vaccine for a job or something is much less. So if you're working with bats and get it through work it's free, or if you get it privately it's pretty cheap but if you're out hiking and get tagged it's extremely painful.

                Getting bit by the creature. So if you do not get bit, go get the vaccine it appears to be relatively cheap but if you do get bit and then go for treatment it's extremely expensive.
