Many of us don’t know about the breeding of various kinds of Bats on Banana Leaves. We can keep us and our family away from many diseases with awareness and cleanliness.

There does exist  ABLV Bat Virus. They breed on banana leaves. The Nipah virus which is transmitted by bats were spreading in southern India. Although the virus can spread through saliva, Nipah is not a super-infectious agent in the air like measles or influenza. So need not be afraid of this. We need to be more hygiene conscious to be avoiding such infections. In southern part of our country, usually people have their meals on banana leaf. What we need to do is to wash it thoroughly before using it for any purpose. The post has been mixed with two different informations and that makes it fake. With no proper investigation, images and messages are forwarded to n-number of people and then it carries on. We should stop believing in such hoax messages and posts. Try and find facts, check if it is a hoax or fake. There are always many clues if we look deep into fake posts. We just need an eye to catch it.
