Brit died of a rage in Morocco after being beaten by a cat. The United Kingdom Health Service said today and specifically invited travelers with destinations in Asia and Africa to abide by the recommendation on vaccination. As the Press Association news agency reported, the affected man was bitten a few weeks ago but was not treated quickly enough.

"In this case, the vaccination was not fast enough," said Jimmy Vhitvorth, a professor at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. In humans, the symptoms of rabies were "two to three months" after exposure to the virus. "It can last only a week, so it's important to contact a doctor immediately and vaccinate yourself," he said.

The inflammation of the attack is the nervous system, especially the brain, which leads to complete paralysis and at the end of death, said Jonathan Ball, a professor of molecular virusology at the University of Nottingham. "There are very effective vaccines, but they must be used before symptoms appear," he said.
