Negligence behind rabies deaths, say health experts

Negligence behind rabies deaths, say health experts”

Even educated people fail to understand the importance and need for a rabies vaccination.

When left untreated rabies can be serious and deadly disease. Initial symptoms include a fever with pain and unusual or unexplained tingling, pricking or burning sensation at the wound site. As the virus spreads to the central nervous system, progressive and fatal inflammation of the brain and spinal cord develops. "Unless the rabies-specific signs of fear of water or of air drafts are present, clinical diagnosis may be hard", he explained. The research team concluded that the decrease in mortality couldn't be explained by a reduction in deaths due to rabies alone. A coma develops, and eventually, death occurs. The theme of this year's World Rabies Day is "Zero by 30", with the goal of reaching zero human deaths from canine rabies by the year 2030.

"This led us to propose that rabies vaccine may have a non-specific protective effect in dogs, perhaps through boosting the immune system to provide enhanced defense against other unrelated diseases", Knobel said.

Can also occur when infectious material - usually saliva - comes into direct contact with human mucosa or fresh skin wounds. Doctors reveal that mass vaccination of dogs and quick action for consultation and prevention in case of bites or wounds caused by animals can improve the situation and in avoiding fatalities caused by the same.

Worldwide and national vaccine manufacturers produce enough vaccine annually to deliver approximately 28 million rabies human PEP treatments in dog rabies-enzootic countries of Africa, Asia, and the Eastern Mediterranean region, preventing almost 98 per cent of human rabies deaths.

Emergency services ER24 has given an overview of rabies, to commemorate World Rabies day.

All warm-blooded animals can contract and then transmit rabies.

Officials are reminding residents to keep children and pets away from stray or wild animals, make sure pets are up-to-date on their vaccinations and if you are ever bitten or scratched by a wild animal to seek medical attention immediately. "The state veterinarians hold rabies clinics where the injections are free of charge", Tanya told Review.

"The plan ensures support to countries in developing national plans, and provides innovative training and education tools across regional rabies networks", said Dr. Bernadette Abela-Ridder on Thursday in a press statement on behalf the United Against Rabies collaboration, consisting of the World Health Organization (WHO), Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO), World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), and Global Alliance for Rabies Control (GARC).
