“Big numbers of bats invade our house at night and leave with the sunrise,” a Bahraini family that resides in Bar Bar area told Albilad Newspaper. 

The housewife noted that she lived in a state of panic every night as bats were believed to be the main cause of COVID-19. She said that her husband has hunted four of them so far but, she added, the number was expected to increase.

She showed Albilad newspaper the dark corner of the house’s living room where the bats usually crammed. She said that they start arriving at 9 pm, and leave the house at dawn.

The housewife pointed out that the size of the bat was small compared to other sizes published on websites.
