As you know, rabies is an infectious viral disease that results in death in almost 100% of cases. Animals do not survive after being infected with rabies, and humans can be cured with a special vaccine, but only if it is injected in time. In 99% of the cases, dogs spread the disease.
There were 447 cases of rabies infection in Ukraine in the first half of 2019, which is 505 cases less than in the same period of 2018.
