Authorities say as many as 15 kindergarten students in Texas could become infected with rabies after playing near an infected bat outside an elementary school.
Police in The Manor, Texas, which is 15 miles east of Austin, said the Manor County School independently discovered video footage of students at Lagos Primary School playing near bats on Monday.
The State Department of Health tested the bat and found it positive for rabies.
The families of the children were warned and encouraged to see the doctor, KXAN-TV reported.
The school campus will be screened and tested for more bats. It was shut down earlier this week after one staff tested positive for coronavirus.
