From rabies, the British died of rats in Morocco

On Monday, the British Health Service reminded travelers of their paths to avoid exposure to rabies in countries where rabies is occurring, especially in Asia and Africa.

In Great Britain rabies is essentially eradicated, although it still spreads among some bats.

"Therefore, this problem is not endangered by the general public, but healthcare workers and people in close contact with (infected patients) are monitored to take precautions when they need to offer a vaccine," said Mary Ramsay, Health Services Immunization Division leader (Meri Ramsi)

The press association's news agency reported that a cat was told a few weeks ago to somebody, while life-saving therapy was not foreseen in a timely manner.

Rabies is a viral disease that causes brain inflammation. From the moment the first symptoms appear, the disease is no longer cured.

The British health service has indicated that since 1902, there have been no people infected with this disease, including bats.

In 2002, one bat was infected in Scotland, and another five people were infected from 2002 to 2017.
