Angolan government demands vaccination of dogs against rabies killing 189 people this year

Angola's health authorities also urge the public to notify the veterinary authorities of the comment that the Lusana agency has received today, any abnormal behavior that can be detected in animals.

According to the document, "the best way to prevent the disease caused by rabies is to avoid an infected animal".

Rabies is considered to be an Angolan public health problem affecting several counties and because it is a 100% deadly disease that endangers many people, especially children who are exposed to aggressive rape attacks, especially dogs, and therefore calls for civil society to cooperate in their struggle and prevention.

To combat and prevent this evil is called 'maltreatment', local and community leaders and the general public 'so that they can give the appropriate destination to coarse animals or apparently without owners and raise awareness of bird breeders, potential prisoners of rabies, to effectively fulfill their obligations.

According to the health authorities, people should wash the wound carefully with soap and water and use alcohol, iodine, mercury or other disinfectant.

"You should not sew or cover the wound and immediately after the first steps, go to the nearest health unit," they complain.

Eusébio Manuel, head of the Department of Hygiene and Epidemiological Monitoring at the Public Health Institute, told the Lusana news agency last October that rabies are still a problem that concerns the Ministry of Health.

Officially, the provinces with the highest prevalence of the disease are Luanda, Huambo, Bié, Benguela, Uíge and Cuanza Sul.

For several years, Angola has been discussing this issue, which is a deadly viral infection for people who are infected with the infected animals.
