Rabies infects people by being bitten by animals such as dog, cat, fox, bat infecting rabies virus. When virus is transmitted, after the two weeks or more incubation period, it presents nerve symptoms such as convulsions, frenzied uproar, the paralysis, coma, and about 100% die when it develops once.
As there is not cure, you inoculate vaccine during the incubation period if bitten by animal of rabies and must prevent the onset.
Rabies is not occurring now in Japan, but it occurs in overseas many countries including Asia, and people 40,000-50,000 a year or more all over the world lose their life. Even if rabies invades Japan whenever at the present when interchange with foreign countries is prosperous, it is not mysterious.
Preventive injection is essential to prevent outbreak of rabies. When dog bit people, reach ward Health and Welfare Center Health Sanitation Division living by the next day on day when we knew the fact and must receive evaluation that lets veterinarian check-up the dog for less than two days, and does not suffer from rabies.
Please refer to homepage (the outside site) of Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare for the details about rabies.
