Australia : Hendra tests refused by 10 people

Via :

" TEN people exposed to the deadly bat-borne Hendra virus have declined to be tested, says Queensland Health.

The testing offer was put to a vet and nine other people who suffered low exposure to the bat-borne virus at a property south of Townsville a fortnight ago.

"People with very low exposure were given the offer and they decided not be tested," the Queensland Health spokesman told AAP.

The 10 were exposed after a horse contracted the virus and died.

Queensland Health initially said the 10 people were being tested."
