Bali Eager to Be Declared Rabies Free

Local Official Pushes for Rapid Return of Rabies-Free Status for Bali.

BisnisBali reports that Bali plans to again seek a "rabies free status" if within six months no new cases of the disease are reported. Such a request would represent an acceleration of existing protocols which mandate a two year period of no rabies cases before any area can be declared free of the potentially lethal disease.

The Head of the Animal Husbandry Department for Bali, Ir. Ida Bagus Ketut Alit, told the press: "If there are no new cases in two years, we can make a proposal (to be declared rabies free) to Jakarta. Having said that, we are hoping there are no new cases allowing us to request certification within six months."

The two-year waiting period to re-qualify for "rabies-free" status is based on a known incubation period for the disease of between 6 months and one year from the time when the bite occurs.

Alit told the press that Bali's ability to regain its rabies-free status will depend on cooperation from the local community, including the willingness of god owners to vaccinate their pets. To that end, 20,000 vaccines have been prepared in Bali.

Any warm-blooded animal can serve as a vector for the spread of rabies to human; a list than can include dogs, cats, monkeys, bats and rodents.
