World Rabies Day

September 28 – World Rabies Day. The project was initiated by the Global Alliance for Rabies Control. The day is dedicated to Louis Pasteur, a French microbiologist, the date of whose death is accepted as Rabies Day. He became the first in the world to create a serum against rabies.

Rabies is an acute brain infection that has dangerous consequences for humans and warm-blooded animals. Today, rabies is spread in more than 150 countries of the world, but it is now curable thanks to vaccines. According to WHO statistics, about 99% of cases of transmission of a dangerous disease to humans occur through dogs.

In the early stages, infected people experience an increase in body temperature, as well as tingling and burning pain in the affected area. Hydrophobia and increased activity often appear in patients. The central nervous system spreads the infectious agent throughout the body, which can lead to inflammation and death of the brain if rabies is not urgently treated. In the case of paralytic rabies, paralysis of the whole body occurs, followed by coma and death.

  • To avoid the dangerous consequences of infection, you should immediately consult a doctor if bitten by a wild animal.
