160 people die of rabies every day, says major new study

A global on canine has found that 160 die single day from the disease. The report is the first study to consider the impact in terms of deaths and the economic costs of across all countries. Even though the disease is preventable, the study that around 59,000 people die every year of rabies transmitted by dogs.

The multi-author study, by the ’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 , 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 of the University of Glasgow, the study is the first to estimate the impact of 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 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

    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.

    This game was really fun its just That after you finish the main story well

    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.

    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!

    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

    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
    missions.

    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
