The article presents a study on giving possible treatment for Daubenton's bat in West Lothian, Scotland through the isolation made for European bat lyssavirus type 2 (EBLV-2) from Daubenton's bat.. Accordingly, the finding has shown the significance of public education concerning the bat lyssavirus infections throughout Great Britain. It is noted that EBLV-2 is considered among the seven classified and four putative lyssavirus genotypes.
