Factors affecting prevalence of human rabies in Poland

Sylvatic rabies is still a serious problem in Poland with foxes being the main reservoir. In 1992 foxes accounted for 67% (2079) of animals that tested positive (3084). The remaining animals were farm animals (235 cases, 8%), cats (185, 6%), dogs (115, 4%), wild ruminants (113, 4%) and others mainly wild animals. Most rabid foxes were in the western districts of Poland, close to the German border. The number of humans that had received post-exposure vaccination in 1992 was 6500.
