World Rabies Day-28 September- Let’s raise awareness together-REPORT-NICD

The National Institute of Communicable Diseases (NICD) has reported that there were 10 confirmed cases of rabies in humans in South Africa in 2019; Eastern Cape Province (4), KwaZulu-Natal (4) and Limpopo (2) Province. This has resulted in the deaths of the ten people.

Did you know – rabies cases are likely underreported in South Africa because people may die at home or even in hospital without adequate laboratory investigation.

#RabiesEndsHere. Vaccinate your animal by visiting your local veterinarian, state veterinarian or Animal Health Technician (AHT).
