Human rabies case reported in Va.

Animal Health SmartBrief | May 15, 2017

A Virginia resident who sustained a dog bite while traveling in India has rabies, the state's first known human case since 2009, when another traveler to India was bitten by a dog. The last Virginia case was fatal, and humans almost always die once infection develops, so public health veterinarian Julia Murphy says it's critical to report possible exposure promptly.
