Because of rabies, the British died in rats in Morocco



Rabies died in Britain, which was affected by a cat in Morocco, and this is the seventh case of this disease in the UK since 2002, officials said on Monday.

On Monday, the British health service remembered travelers to avoid contact with animals in countries where rabies was detected, especially in Asia and Africa.

In the UK, rabies is generally fought, although it continues to spread among some bats.

"For this reason, there is no danger for a wider audience, but healthcare workers and people who are in close contact with an infected patient are monitored for precautions if they have a need to offer a vaccine," said Mary Ramsay, head of the vaccination unit (Meri Ramsi)

The press agency of the Press Association said that the cat was bitten by a man a few weeks ago, while potentially life-saving treatment was not delivered in a timely manner.

Rabies is a viral disease that causes inflammation of the brain. Since the first symptoms appear, the disease is usually not cured anymore.

The British health service indicated that from 1902 there were no cases of people infected with this disease, including bats.

One person from the bat was infected in 2002 in Scotland, and another five people were infected during the trip in 2002-2017.
