Two More Dead of Rabies
The Bali Times
Two more people have died of suspected rabies at Denpasar’s Sanglah Hospital. They were a 30-year-old woman from Tembuku in Bangli and a man from Bebandem in Karangasem.
Both were admitted to Sanglah’s isolation ward on Monday with advanced rabies-like symptoms and both had been bitten by dogs. Both died the following day.
Sanglah’s rabies treatment chief, Dr Ken Wirasandhi, said on Wednesday that tissue sampling would determine whether they had died of rabies. If so, their deaths bring Bali’s official rabies toll to 45.Filed under: Arts & Entertainment
