Man dies and 40 others are bitten after vampire bats attack humans in Brazil

Victims report waking to find their bed sheets soaked in blood – and the outbreak is the largest wave of attacks ever recorded in the region.

The death is the first recorded case of human rabies, transmitted by a bat, in Brazil since 2004.

One of the victims, Matheus Andrade, who lives in the historic centre of the city said: ‘I was bitten three times.

‘When I woke up in the morning, I found the bed was wet. It had been raining overnight and I thought water had dripped in. But it was my blood. It was such a shock.
