MENDES, Wellington da Silva et al. An outbreak of bat-transmitted human rabies in a village in the Brazilian Amazon. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 2009, vol.43, n.6, pp.1075-1077.  Epub 18-Dez-2009. ISSN 1518-8787.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89102009005000073.

During 45 days without electrical power, 57 individuals (8.7% of the population) from the village of Antônio Dino (municipality of Turiaçu, Northeastern Brazil) were attacked by bats and 16 died from human rabies. The aim of the study was to analyze the factors associated with bat attacks and the development of human rabies. Of the 46 individuals, who suffered bat attacks, 36 (78.3%) were under 17 years of age. The risk factors associated with bat attacks were age under 17 years, having observed bats inside the bedroom and having been without electrical power in the house. Age under 17 years and having been without electrical power in the house were factors associated with human rabies.
