A global study on canine rabies has found that 160 people die every single day from the disease. The report is the first study to consider the impact in terms of deaths and the economic costs of rabies across all countries. Even though the disease is preventable, the study says that around 59,000 people die every year of rabies transmitted by dogs.
The multi-author study, by the Global Alliance for Rabies Control's Partners for Rabies Prevention Group, also shows that annual economic losses because of the disease are around 8.6 billion US dollars, mostly due to premature deaths, but also because of spending on human vaccines, lost income for victims of animal bites and other costs.
“This ground-breaking study is an essential step towards improved control and eventual elimination of rabies,” says Professor Louis Nel, Executive Director of the Global Alliance for Rabies Control (GARC). “An understanding of the actual burden helps us determine and advocate for the resources needed to tackle this fatal disease.”
Led by Dr Katie Hampson of the University of Glasgow, the study is the first to estimate the impact of canine rabies and the extent of control efforts in every country in the world.
Dr Hampson explains, “The breadth of data used in this study, from surveillance reports to epidemiological study data to global vaccine sales figures, is far greater than ever analysed before, allowing this more detailed output.”
The study finds that overwhelmingly the greatest risk of canine rabies is in the poorest countries; the death rate (deaths / 100,000 people) is highest in countries in sub-Saharan Africa, while India has the highest number of fatalities, with over 20,000 human deaths annually. The proportion of dogs vaccinated is far below that necessary to control

This game gets boring after finishing the story mode, AC4 is better than
The graphics on watch dogs are better than gta v
The worst game of 2014!!
ANYONE WHO SEES THIS how long is the campain about? I’ve heard 20-35 hours
You forgot zero replay value.
6/10 imo, clearly Ubi paid IGN here…
Lol ubisoft just stop trying. Leave it to Rockstar or Bethesda to make an
open world game that actually feels alive u noobs.
I’m a GTA fanboy, but I feel like you can’t compare this to GTA V at all n
anyway. Thinking about buying it. Chicago is something different than NY &
LA which attracts me.
Great game !!
This game was really fun its just That after you finish the main story well
its pretty much boring
This game is not bad. Not at all. It’s actually pretty good. It was a bit
too overhyped and that’s what lead people to disappointment. That’s why I’m
never hyped for a game, so that I won’t be disappointed when it comes out.
The game is a solid 7-8/10.
The part that people are pissed off about is that Ubisoft misled us. They
showed off a demo in E3 2012 with mind blowing, unreal graphics and
mechanics. We later found out that we got phished by Ubisoft, as they
downgraded those graphics and claim that there was no downgrade EVEN THOUGH
we found a file that re enabled those graphics we saw in 2012.
Ubisoft should stop it with these shady tactics because if they keep those
habits up, it will lead to Ubisoft’s downfall and death. They are a great
company and it’d be sad to see them die.
Another example is with the recent Assassin’s Creed game, Assassin’s Creed:
Unity. Ubisoft forced the developers to release the game in a buggy, laggy,
unpolished, unplayable state. This year hasn’t been the best for Ubisoft
and I really hope they stop with these shady tactics.
This game is terribly underrated. It’s way better than Grand Shit Auto V
buying this game since its on sale on xbox fpr 20 :P
I don’t care what any moaners say, I’ve been addicted to this since
downloading it yesterday for my PS4, and was up till the early hours then
up a few hours later playing again. I love it! A fuse between GTA and
Splinter Cell (two of my favourite games) and works brilliantly. So much to
do, so many side missions, collectables, upgrades, missions that actually
give the player choice of how to tackle them. Brilliant game!
Why does everyone think this game sucks? I got it and it is amazing so far
WATCH_DOGS = Most disapointing game on Next gen!!!!!!
IGN is lying to you, they are being paid off by companies to say shit that
isnt true. Watch Dogs on PC was terrible, but IGN cant mention that. Devs
and publishers already dont have any respect for PC, but this was bad.
There was an immense amount of stuttering, freezes, poor textures, and
overall it was a terrible PC port. The story was good, but the ending was
lazy and it screamed sequel bait. I like how they kinda just brush off the
fact that Aiden is an emotionless idiot. Its important to have the
character you play as actually get angry or depressed. Online hacking is
very buggy and fails half the time (maybe only on PC), but the city of
Chicago is very alive. There is neat window dressing all over. Just do more
research dont listen to machinima, or ign. People like angry joe and TB are
so much better than these idiots. I would give watch dogs 6/10
Infiltrating other players,
Boring open world,
Lots of glitches (corrupt save file, npc stuck,
Graphics were not close to what we got promised,
Very limited open world,
Escaping police is way too easy,
Same window reflection in every building,
No bullet impact,
Poor draw distance,
and quite some more things, now GTA V:
Lots to do,
Lack of stealth,
Mediocre fist fighting,
Having played Watchdogs everyday since it came out I can point out a few
issues that everyone will agree with…
1. The constant cutting out of the radio right when your enjoying the one
fucking good song for either a crime nearby or some shitty radio broadcast
is so damn annoying I want to scream
2. Driving Mechanics suck
3. Graphics are pretty poor
4. No surprises or willingness to explore and find cool things in the
map… Because there arent any.
Except for all those annoyances I’m actually enjoying the story and side
I’ll get hate comments for this, but … I like this game!
Yes, I am dissapointed that it is downgraded, but it is still lots of fun
IMO and that’s what matters to me
