Rabies

PARIS: I think I got rabies.
RORY: It’s just a bus, Paris.

Rabies is a viral disease causing inflammation of the brain. It usually begins with a fever, progresses to nausea, vomiting, confusion, and loss of consciousness, and almost always ending in death. It is spread from bites from an infected animal, such as a dog (globally, the most common cause of infection). In North America, where dogs are usually vaccinated against rabies, it is nearly always spread by bats. Most deaths are in Africa and Asia.
