There is an ongoing outbreak as 15 other adults are dead because of the disease which primarily affects the brain and the nerves. It is caused by the rabies virus and so the attack made in the body spreads fast as well as the transmission.
Additionally, a concerned health personnel has revealed that in the said locality, 3,500 individuals were already bitten by the nocturnal animals and added a warning that the mortality rate could surge at a fast rate because of the price and inaccessibility of the vaccines to be used as the prime defense.
Records showed that the children who died belonged to the indigent groups inhabiting near the border of Ecuador. The attack is subsequently believed by some local folks to be associated with climate change and the destruction of the bats’ rainforest habitat.
Help has already been sent in the area and vaccinations are being done. However, some local folks are refusing the offered treatment.
