An infographic on rabies vs. vaccine.
Rabies is a viral disease of all mammals which is transmitted via the saliva (biting) of rabies diseased animal. Once in the organism of the bitten animal, the virus infects the CNS (Central nervous system) consequently causing nervous symptoms and dysfunctions and death.
Many wild animals are carriers, reservoirs of Rabies and are most likely to transmit the virus to humans, domestic animals, and pets. Such wild animals include bats, coyotes, skunks, raccoons, and foxes.
While the general transmission is through bite wounds, there have been few cases where an aerosol transmission has been noticed in closed areas with high density of infected animals inside, for example, bat caves.
