Update: March, 04/2015 - 09:29

HA NOI (VNS) — The number of fatalities caused by rabies last year was 66 nationwide, the lowest for the last 10 years, reported the Department of Preventive Medicine last Saturday.

Last year, more than 399,000 people had vaccinations after being bitten by dogs suspected of being rabid, an increase of 11 per cent over 2013.

The Ministry of Health will work closely with the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development to promote campaigns against the disease, which is often borne by dogs and cats. — VNS
