World Rabies Day on 28th of September aims to raise awareness of the impact, prevention and elimination of human and animal rabies, which kills about 55000 people per year all over the world.

The map shows the occurrence of rabies worldwide in 2007. As depicted by graduated colours, rabies was present in most countries, except for some in Northern Europe, along the Mediterranean coast or islands. The dog symbols indicate the highest number of annual reported rabies human deaths recorded between 2002 and 2006. From the map, the majority of rabies human deaths occurred in Asia and Africa, where post-exposure treatment was costly and inadequate.

Data for this map were obtained from World Health Organization.

全球每年約有五萬五千人死於瘋狗症〈又名狂犬病〉。九月二十八日的世界狂犬病日,旨在提高公眾對人類及動物瘋狗症的影響、預防及根除措施的認識。

地圖顯示二零零七年全球瘋狗症的分佈情況。依圖中顏色所示,除了一些位於北歐、地中海沿岸或島上的國家外,大部分國家均發現瘋狗症病例。另外,狗形圖案標示全球各國於二零零二至零六年間因人類瘋狗症而死亡的最高年度數目。要預防病毒傳播,接觸瘋狗症動物後需要接受治療。由於費用昂貴且服務不足夠,促使非洲及亞洲各國的人類瘋狗症死亡個案報告高企。
