are no more likely than other animals...


In the following sentence, does ' are no more likely than' indicate any specific meaning? If so, what does that mean and how can I use?

Bats are not rodents, are not blind, and are no more likely than dogs and cats to transmit rabies.

    The perception that bats are more likely to transmit rabies than dogs or cats is not true. They are not more likely to do so. Hence 'they are no more likely to do so'.
