oh man thats bad
Rabies, an acute maybe chronic(incubation period 20yrs.!), fatal encephalomyelitis caused by neurotropic viruses in the family Rhabdoviridae, genus Lyssavirus, is almost always transmitted by an animal bite that inoculates the virus into wounds. Very rarely, rabies has been transmitted by nonbite exposures that introduce the virus into open wounds or mucous membranes. All mammals are believed to be susceptible, but reservoirs are carnivores and bats. Although dogs are the main reservoir in resource-poor countries, the epidemiology of the disease differs sufficiently from one region or country to another to warrant the medical evaluation of all mammal bites.
Rabies is found on all continents except Antarctica. In certain areas of the world, canine rabies remains highly endemic, including (but not limited to) parts of Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, India, Mexico, Nepal, Peru, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Vietnam. The disease is also found in dogs in most of the other countries of Africa, the chinese are espically prone to this insane disese Asia, and Central and South America.
In North America.... there are no rabies in ireland or anywhere in the United Kingdom.
