If you’ve ever seen a pet get a rabies vaccine, you probably already know that people can get rabies through animal bites. This highly zoonotic virus is notorious for being able to spread from species to species. Among doctors, it’s more famous for its 100 percent kill rate.
Rabies acts by attacking a person’s neurological system. Sufferers start to get agitated, then stop being able to swallow food, eventually, they lose their ability to control their body. Once they get into a stupor, they die.
