Public should seek medical help if they suspect rabies exposure: Study

New Delhi, Apr 15 (ANI): A new research has highlighted the importance of raising awareness about the rising risks of rabies and advised to seek medical treatment on time. People wait an average of 10 days before seeking medical advice following exposure to potentially rabid animals overseas, according to the study.

The study was discussed in the meeting ECCMID 2019 and was presented this year at the European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands in April, which states that the average delay in seeking treatment following bat exposures in the UK was almost three days.
