Rabies claims seventh victim in Sarawak

KUCHING: The rabies outbreak in Sarawak has claimed its seventh victim, a 26-year-old man from Taman Sri Makmur at Matang who died on Tuesday.

The latest victim was bitten by a stray dog on Dec 23 last year, said Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.

The man did not seek treatment at a clinic but merely obtained medicine from a pharmacy.

“Last month, he suffered muscle pain, numbness and headache and received treatment at a private clinic on March 29 and 30.

“On April 2, his condition worsened and he was given follow-up treatment at a government clinic. He was then referred to the Sarawak General Hospital (SGH) on the same day,” Dr Noor Hisham said.

He said the victim showed symptoms of hydrophobia, aerophobia, hallucinations and weak limbs before passing away at SGH. A lab test on Thursday confirmed he had rabies.

Since June 30 last year, there have been eight cases of rabies in Sarawak resulting in seven deaths.

So far, 30 areas in Serian, Sri Aman, Kuching, Samarahan and Sarikei divisions have been declared rabies-infected by the Sarawak government.
