Hello Claire Olga, thank you for the question.
Rabies, as many people know, is a viral infection that is transmitted by animals to humans through bites, scratches or saliva. This virus attacks the nervous system and brain so that the potential for fatality is very high. Animals that carry this virus include dogs, cats, bats, ferrets, monkeys or monkeys, and rabbits. The initial symptoms of rabies are fever, headache, photosensitivity (not resistant to sunlight), accompanied by muscle weakness, and tingling or numbness at the site of the bite. Generally rabies is mostly caused by dog bites. Dogs that suffer from rabies also show similar symptoms that are easy to go, easy to bite, easily aroused by touch, light, and sound, excessive salivation, and changes in behavior.
It takes around 2-3 months from biting to the onset of symptoms as described above. Generally the symptoms of advanced rabies occur when the virus has attacked the nervous system. Symptoms include hyperactivity, irritability, fear of water and wind. In addition, nerve symptoms also appear in the form of muscle paralysis, difficulty breathing due to respiratory muscle paralysis, decreased consciousness, to enter into a coma. Generally when it enters the stage of nerve infection, the mortality rate is very high. If it is true that your niece has a rabies infection, then the biggest possibility now is to seek symptomatic treatment. This means that doctors will try to maintain vital functions to remain stable while still trying to increase the body's immunity to fight the rabies virus. There is always hope for healing even though it is thin, so give an explanation to your family while still providing positive support.
Hopefully this information can help you and your family a little. Regards.
