Transmission of the disease:


Any warm-blooded animal including human can be inflected by Rabies. Most animals can be inflected this virus and is able to transmit to humans. Rabies is able to grow up in cells of humans’ bodies and develop. It can also transmit between humans, but it is rare.

Soon after, the symptoms expand to slight or partial paralysis, cerebral dysfunction, anxiety, insomnia, confusion, agitation, abnormal behavior, paranoia, terror, hallucinations, progressing to delirium.
Death almost invariably results two to ten days after the first symptoms; the few humans who are known to have survived the disease were all left with severe brain damage.
