"Rabies is a contagious, lethal disease in animals that is typically transmitted to pets through contact with wild animals, and can be transmitted to humans. Fortunately, rabies is easily preventable through vaccination", said Joanne Maki, Director Veterinary Public Health for Wildlife and Companion Animals for Merial. "World Rabies Day is a unique opportunity for all of us to play a part in spreading the word about eliminating human rabies through the vaccination of animals. The more of us who participate, the stronger we are in this important fight".
"狂犬病是动物身上的一种致死性传染病,通常通过接触野生动物传染给宠物,人也会被传染。幸运的是,通过给动物免疫接种能够很容易地预防狂犬病",Joanne Maki,梅里亚野生动物和宠物兽医公共卫生总监说,"'世界狂犬病日'为我们所有人提供了一个有利的机会,能够参与世界范围内的宣传活动,传播理念――即通过给动物免疫接种,能够帮助消除人类感染狂犬病。参与宣传的人越多,在这场与狂犬病的拉锯战中我们就越占优势"。

About Rabies关于狂犬病
According to the Center for Disease Control, around 70,000 people die from rabies annually, with over 99% of these deaths in Africa and Asia, as a result of being bitten by an infected dog. Up to 60% of all dog bites and rabies deaths occur in children under 15 years of age. Rabies is 99.9% fatal, but it is also 100% preventable. Eliminating the disease by vaccinating dogs protects them and stops transmission to people.
据疾病控制中心透露,每年约有 70,000 人死于狂犬病,其中99% 以上发生在非洲和亚洲,主要是由于被病狗咬伤致病。高达 60% 的狗咬和狂犬病致死受害者为 15 岁以下儿童。狂犬病的致死率达99.9%,却是100%可以预防的。通过为犬类接种疫苗,既可以保护它们对狂犬病免疫,也可以防止将疾病进一步传染给人,从而清除狂犬病。
