Dr Ian Marr has produced a useful summary for our local ID & Micro tutes recently which is shared – Rabies_2018 Marr .
It includes reference to Australian bat lyssavirus which clearly may have an incidence outside of Australia (in bats and/or humans)! Serosurveillance of bat populations in the Philippines has suggested that lyssavirus infection of bats might be more widespread than previously thought.
For the purposes of post-grad UPNG pathology revision, I would suggest you consider these additional questions-
- What is the local epidemiology of rabies in SE Asia? Especially focus on prevalence of cases within Indonesia.
- Read up the rabies vaccine advice provided by the Australian NHMRC Immunisation handbook.
