In Shenyang, 2000 people inoculated the rabies vaccine in June. The data from the adult outpatient clinic shows that the number of patients with rabies vaccine in June increased twice than May. There are more than 70 in average a day injected the vaccine, reaching nearly 2000 in total within a month.

Rabies is an acute infectious central nervous system disease caused by the animal virus. After bitten or scratched by disease and infected animals such as cat, dog, wolf or fox, the virus will proliferate into muscles and the ganglion cell through the skin, gradually causing death.

Lick wound is a means by which people are getting infected. Without leaving an obvious scar, people seldom pay attention to the bite or scratch. However, this is quite wrong since the virus might have already taken into the body through saliva.

Doctor reminder: Rabies virus cannot coexist with alkali. After bitten by a dog, it is recommended to wash with soap immediately for about 15 minutes. This can help sterilize and reduce the risk of inflection. But reducing risk does not mean that rabies can be completely prevented, a vaccine is also necessary after cleaning with soap. If the wound is large and deep, be sure to go to the hospital as soon as possible. All citizens should avoid being bitten or scratched by animals. If injured accidentally, please go to the doctor in time, get regular treatment and vaccination, which can effectively prevent inflection.
