Keywords:bat, emerging infectious disease, South Malang karst, zoonotic diseases
Bats are mammal species that have the highest diversity. During the last two decades, various types of
infections caused by microorganisms have again become epidemic in many countries, this phenomenon is
known as a new infectious disease that arises and re-emerges or Re-Emerging Infectious Diseases (EID/
REID). The purpose of this study was to identify EID in bats in the karst area of South Malang. The research
method of bat sampling is conducted in the karst area of South Malang, bats are identified by species,
taken by blood, prepared and carried out by NGS (next generation sequencing). From the results of the
research conducted, obtained 2 types of bats namely fruit-eating bats (Chiroptera brachjatis) and insect bats
