Human Rabies

Here is a short PowerPoint presentation about rabies--a deadly viral disease usually transmitted from the virus-laden saliva of rabid animals. The most common animal reservoir are the dogs. Other animals include cats, monkeys, foxes, bats and mongoose. Chickens and snakes do not transmit the disease.
