LiveScience: Researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that one in 15 people in a remote region of Peru were protected from rabies because vampire bats expose them to the virus. “The new news here is that in areas in the world where rabies is endemic and there aren’t vaccinations, there may be some resistance,” said James Kazura, professor of international health.
