CDC Reports Increase in Human Rabies Cases Linked to Bats in the U.S. Three U.S. rabies deaths in just five weeks

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is raising awareness of the risks of rabies from bats in the U.S. after three people, including one child, died from rabies between late September and early November 2021.

The three cases, all stemming from contact with bats and described in the January 6, 2022, Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, bring the total number of cases in 2021 to five, compared to no reported rabies cases in people during 2019 and 2020, the largest number in a decade.

CDC officials said the deaths were tragic and could have been prevented.

One, an 80-year-old Illinois man, refused to take life-saving shots because of a longstanding fear of vaccines. An Idaho man and a Texas boy did not get shots because of a belief that no bat bite or scratch broke their skin.

In all three cases, people “either trivialized the exposure (to bats) or they didn’t recognize the severity of rabies,” said Ryan Wallace, a CDC rabies expert who co-authored the report.

Two other deaths occurred earlier in 2021. One was a Minnesota man bitten by a bat. He got the shots, but an undiagnosed immune system problem hampered their effectiveness, CDC officials said. The other victim was bitten by a rabid dog while traveling in the Philippines and died in New York after returning to the U.S.

Rabies is caused by a virus that invades the central nervous system and is usually fatal in animals and humans. It’s most commonly spread through a bite from an infected animal, with most U.S. infections in recent years traced to bat encounters.

Infection can cause insomnia, anxiety, confusion, paralysis, salivating, hallucinations, difficulty swallowing and fear of water.

Death can occur only a couple of weeks after symptoms begin. But it can be prevented through a series of five shots given within two weeks of exposure.

An estimated 60,000 Americans are treated each year after possible exposure to rabies, the CDC says.

There were no rabies deaths reported in 2019 or 2020. The last time five U.S. rabies deaths were reported in a single year was 2011, CDC officials said. [CDC, CTVNews]

  1. Listen.. im with you on the Graphine oxide in the cv19 shots and and that other shit.. but RABIES virus is REAL and it kills thousands of people e ery year in india & Africa..

    Rabies vax is not made the same way the new mRNA is made and its not a leaky vax either because that would be too dangerous the risk..

    Minnesota git high rate of cv19 vaxxing.. how much you want to bet the guy in Minnesota got the cv19… which killed his IMMUNE SYSTEM.. then he got bot, got the shots and still died because of his dead immune system?

    Dont you understand what this means? Ir means ALOT of people are going to die of rabies even if they get the shots because they also hot the cv19 which makes them susceptible to EVERY OTHER ILLNESS..

  2. Rabies, or hydrophobia, has never been proven to be caused by a virus. In fact, no virus has ever been isolated and purified and shown to cause disease. There are countless toxins that could cause the symptoms that lead to a rabies diagnosis. Virus caused rabies is just one more lie in a string of lies about what makes people sick.

  3. B.S. article. Every vaxXxine being made is corrupted with graphene oxide, nano particles and toxic heavy metal salts. The 80 yr old man knew this. So what killed him, then? Could be nearly anything these days: AMA death cult actions at medical facilities, electrosmog causing stroke, microwave pulsed energies, bad bottle of booze, who knows, the article does not state if the older man had injury resulting in rabies from a bite or scratch. Instead, they hope YOU ” fill in the blanks” and be led to the conclusion the author desires you to conclude.

    “An Idaho man and a Texas boy did not get shots because of a belief that no bat bite or scratch broke their skin.” Gee, what led to the belief that no bite or scratch broke their skin? Could it be that they did not suffer injury, leading to the belief that they did not suffer injury. Do you cut your finger and not know it?

    GTFOH with this stupidity.
