Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Corona virus or 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is a new type of coronavirus that attacks the respiratory system, causing sufferers to experience mild to severe respiratory system disorders, even causing death. Infectious respiratory system diseases caused by this virus are called COVID-19. The virus was originally transmitted from wild animals to humans. And now, the virus has been proven to spread from infected humans to healthy humans. Transmission is through direct contact with coughing, sneezing or patient saliva containing viruses. In addition, it can also occur due to holding the object affected by splashes of nose or mouth fluids containing the virus, then holding hands around the nose and mouth.
Now, in connection with your question, the incident that you experience can be a path of transmission of the virus if the bat's body contains this virus. Therefore, immediately wash the skin that is in contact with the bat. Also wash your hands in contact with the skin exposed to the bat. For the time being you should get used to washing your face, hands, feet and other exposed body parts every time from outside the house. If later you experience symptoms such as COVID-19 disease, immediately check with your nearest doctor so that you can do a direct examination and can get the right treatment and quickly.
Thus hopefully useful.
