Australian bat lyssavirus
infection: a second human case, with a long incubation period.
The zoonotic diseases Australian Bat Lyssavirus
and Hendra virus both require close contact with bats, or horses infected from bats, respectively.
There are 14 recognized species in the genus Lyssavirus: rabies virus (RABV), Lagos bat virus, Mokola virus (MOKV), Duvenhage virus, European bat lyssavirus
types 1 and 2, Australian bat lyssavirus
(ABLV), Aravan virus (ARAV), Khujand virus, Irkut virus, Shimoni bat virus, Bokeloh bat lyssavirus
, West Caucasian bat virus, and Ikoma lyssavirus (IKOV) (1).

There is also information about managing rabies and Australian bat lyssavirus
Additionally, 38 homologous sequences recovered from GenBank were included in the phylogenetic trees of the N and G genes (29 and none, respectively) and European bat Lyssavirus
1 (another specie in the Lyssavirus) was used as an outgroup.
O genero Lyssavirus inclui 11 especies conhecidas (Tabela 1), e 11 genotipos identificados ate o momento, consistindo no virus classico da raiva (RABV, genotipo 1), Lagos bat virus (LBV, genotipo 2), Mokola virus (MOKV, genotipo 3), Duvenhage virus (DUVV, genotipo 4), European bat lyssavirus
(EBLV-1, genotipo 5), European bat lyssavirus
(EBLV-2, genotipo 6), e Australian bat lyssavirus
(ABLV, genotipo 7).
He had been bitten by a bat with European bat lyssavirus
Phylogroup I comprises the worldwide serotype 1 [classical rabies virus and Australian Bat Lyssavirus
(ABL)] (28), (29), serotype 4 (Duvenhage virus), serotype 5 [European Bat Lyssavirus
1 (EBL-1)] and serotype 6 [European Bat Lyssavirus
2 (EBL-2)] (30), (31).
The European Bat Lyssavirus
2 (EBLV-2) strain is closely related to the classical rabies virus and is common in bats across northern Europe.
The female bat later died and was sent to a Surrey laboratory where scientists confirmed the presence of European Bat Lyssavirus
(EBLV) - a rare strain of bat rabies.
