International Rabies Experts from Europe, America and Asia Gather to Formulate Mid to Long Term Plans for Taiwan’s Rabies Prevention

ports published on international journals that organs from rabies infected donors find their way to their new owners, experts expressed that the probability of such cases is very low, with recommendations for Taiwan to focus on organs suspected to carry encephalitis and to trace the donors’ contact history with animals for the purpose of assessing the risk of being infected with rabies. Preserving samples from the donor organs and running lab tests and post-mortem examinations on them when necessary would also prevent cross infecting of patients from donors to receivers during organ transplant. Guidelines of the US CDC can also be adopted, which require detailed explanations being made to receivers regarding the risks involved during the organ transplant and consent forms being signed. 

The Command Center once again reminds the public of avoiding contact with, hunting or keeping wild animals. Pets should not be abandoned and regular vaccination should be enforced. Upon discovery of any abnormal signs exhibited by animals like: refusal to eat or drink, anxiety, frequent urination, photophobia or becoming more aggressive, immediate reporting to the local animal disease control agency would be deeply appreciated.
