I saw in the YouTube video COVID-19 that bats carry so many viruses, yet never or almost never get a disease by any of them. I'm looking for an evolutionary reason as well as a reason based on how their bodies work. However, when you're giving the reason based on how the bodies work, I want you to find some clever way to summarize the reason in a way that I can understand because I hardly know anything about biology.
Could the evolutionary reason be something like this? Bats live in large groups all the time and keep switching around their groupings. Viruses that infect bats evolved by natural selection to do everything they can to spread between bats and survive and not have every last bit of it fought off. Bats in turn evolved by natural selection to not let viruses take over their body more than just a tiny bit. So it was to the evolutionary advantage of both bats and viruses that infect them to form a compromise where the virus gets to invade their bodies to a very small extent but not too much.
