The two most recent deaths occurred in 1984 and 1985, only one of which followed exposure in Canada. This was due to a bat bite, as were 3 of the last 4 human rabies cas...

In Ontario, Canada, the implementation of an annual rabies control programme in wildlife that began in 1989 resulted in a marked, steady decrease in the number of animal rabies cases. The number of animal rabies cases decreased from 1870 in 1989 t...

To confirm the...
