Rabies in Haiti is a asthma viral disease.
Rabies often cause fatal inflammation of the brain in humans and other mammals, such as dogs exacerbate and mongooses in Haiti.
1, the term "rabies" is derived from a Latin word that means "to rage". 3, that is because animals with rabies sometimes act as if they are angry.
Early symptoms can include fever as well as tingling at the site of exposure, 1 followed by one or more of the following symptoms: violent movements, uncontrolled excitement, fear of water, an inability to move parts of the body, confusion, and loss of consciousness. 1, once symptoms appear, the result is nearly always death. 1, the time period between contracting the disease and the start of symptoms is usually one to three months; however, this time period can vary from less than one week to more than one year.
1, the time is dependent on the distance the virus must travel to reach the central nervous system. 1 4, haiti is one of five remaining countries in the Americas where canine rabies is still a problem and has the highest rate of human rabies deaths in the western hemisphere with an estimated two deaths each week. Only about seven deaths are reported to health authorities each year due to poor surveillance, limitations in diagnostic capacity, and lack of awareness and education about the disease among Haitians.
In 2013, CDC and its partners began an animal rabies surveillance program in several regions in Haiti, and saw an 18-fold rise in detection of rabid animals.
As a result from the 2015 campaign, CDC evaluated Haitis canine rabies vaccination program and found that only 45 percent of dogs were vaccinated.
Far short of the 70 percent needed to stop rabies spreading in the dog population. In addition, the researchers found that Haiti has nearly 1 million dogs, twice as many as previously thought. 5, cDC and its partners had already begun a dog vaccination trial evaluating the best vaccination methods for Haiti.
