Phitsanulok bats still a star attraction despite virus fears

Local people and tourists visiting Noen Maprang district in Phitsanulok province to see one of its main attractions, crowds of bats in a cave, seem to be unfazed by the new coronavirus outbreak.

 

The swarms of bats fly from the cave at around 6pm every day, drawing large numbers of local people and tourists to take photos.

 

Noen Maprang public health officer Thammarat Phetree explained that the species of bats in the province was different from those in China.

 

“As a result, people and tourists are visiting Noen Maprang without fear,” he said. “However, our public health office remains on alert and we are instructing people on dangers from the virus and prevention.”

 

The officer said that a big cleaning activity will be undertaken at government offices, schools, and banks next week.

Popular in Bang Rakam as well. I’ve asked that gaeng bat be off the menu, or at least off my plate, when I’m there.

The bats aren't the problem...people are. :coffee1:

 

Snapped these Flying Foxes a couple months ago in Chachoengsao. There were a thousand minimum. The trees were dripping with them. They bothered no one.
