Tragedy in Germany: six transplants have rabies[edit]

Terrible tragedy looms in Germany: more recent news say all six transplants have rabies now. Added to the article. See: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/4271453.stm

Mentioned in FoxTrot[edit]

This article was mentioned in a FoxTrot comic strip (the image) about Wikipedia today (May 7 2005), though it obviously didn't get the same attention that Warthog did as a result [1]. Just thought I'd mention it. --Phoenix-forgotten 17:52, 2005 May 7 (UTC)

Australia Free of Rabies[edit]

In the second paragraph, Australia is linked to a statistic of "less than 5% of cases are from dogs, with bats being the most common cause". However, later on, it's made clear Australia has "always" been free of Rabies. What am I missing? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 123.2.152.147 (talk) 01:14, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

This is really the worst article I've read on Wikipedia ever (someone fix this)[edit]

Every sentence in the first paragraph is source and the picture caption says "Person with Rabies"

Also, the maps wrong.

And I quote,

Rodents are very rarely infected.[3] The rabies virus travels to the brain by following the peripheral nerves. The disease can also be diagnosed after the start of symptoms.[1]

What the **** are those three sentences doing next to each other? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:8:1F00:483:6017:5723:CFE0:C261 (talk) 17:24, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

The lead is an overview of the article. The first bit deals with cause. The second bit with mechanism. The third bit with diagnosis. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) (if I write on your page reply on mine) 23:09, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Upcoming edit[edit]

Hello all! My colleagues and I have identified several recent reviews with which to update this page. As already mentioned in this discussion page, this article needs a clean up so it can be brought up to standard. Our goal is to improve the clarity of the information by working on its structure and content. Our work should be complete in the next two months, and we welcome collaborators!
