THANH HÓA (VNS) — A rabid dog attacked seven people in Thanh Hóa Province, including a pregnant woman who later died from rabies.

The dog had been raised by the family of the dead woman, 31-year-old Nguyễn Thị Hà, in Lang Chánh Town. Last week, the animal reportedly developed strange symptoms and attacked seven people, including Hà.

Even after she had been bitten, Hà did not go to the health station to get the rabies vaccine. She developed seizures on March 21 and was rushed to hospital, but she died later.

Six others who had been bitten by the dog had already been vaccinated and are in stable condition. — VNS
