Rabies-V1220

Rabies is a fatal viral infection. Transmission of rabies almost always occurs by the saliva-laden bite of an infected mammal. Infection through fresh wounds or mucous membranes is less likely but possible. Droplet infection (aerosol) is possible as well, particularly in congregations of cave-dwelling bats where saliva droplets are dispersed in the air.
