Rabies Article in Negros Chronicle today. “More than 7,000 dogs or 70% of the canine population of the city have received their anti-rabies vaccine but 2,000 others have yet to be made free of the dreaded virus. City Veterinarian Dr. Baby Socorro hopes that before the year ends the entire 9,200 dog population shall have been vaccinated against rabies. She also reported that there have been no incidents of attacks by rabies-infected dogs. The number of people infected with rabies primarily due to dog bites have dropped sharply. Dozens of people have already died in the past due to the rabies virus introduced into the body not only by dogs but even other animals through biting. Most of the victims whose brains have been the main target of the rabies virus also display dog-like behavior before they die. Meanwhile, the City Veterinarian is currently implementing the execution of hundreds of stray and sickly dogs to spare the public from any diseases and possible attacks.” In the 2nd paragraph I think the article meant to say, “that there have been no recent incidents, given the article followed about deaths in the past.
