Rabies is 100% fatal and preventable.
In India, rabies affects mainly people of lower socio-economic status and children between the ages of 5 and 15 years. Indian children often play near stray dogs, which are many and roam freely, and are used to sharing their food with them, which results in frequent bites.
In one study, most children attacked by dogs were unaware of having been bitten and their parents often ignored the attacks or simply treated the wounds by applying indigenous products such as hot peppers or turmeric. Only a few parents sought medical advice, usually with delay.
Given the conditions that prevail in India, several measures must be taken to control rabies effectively. Among these, vaccination of street dogs is a necessary measure.
