The scourge of rabies remains a continuing threat in Bali with four more victims dying of the disease in the first week of 2011. The latest victims bring the death toll to 118 and come from the regencies of Klungkung and Karangasem in Bali.

Wayan Sulana (36) of Pelisan village, Kubu, Karangasem, died on New Year's day while being treated in the isolation unit of Denpasar's Sanglah General Hospital. Meanwhile, Putu Adi Sucipta Yasa (11) of Banjar Pancingan, Kusamba, Klungkung was rushed to the hospital on Sunday, January 2, 2011, in a critical condition exhibiting classic symptoms of rabies following an untreated dog bite suffered three months earlier. According to Kompas.com, the child died within 24 hours of admission to the hospital.

The near island of Nusa Penida, which forms a part of the Klungkung regency, is also not free of the scourge of rabies. 58-year-old Nusa Penida resident Wayan Citra died in the Sanglah hospital on Friday, January 7, 2011, after being admitted with rabies symptom the day before. Citra's family told hospital officials that the man had been bitten in the calf of his leg one month before.

Authorities also report the death of Dewa Nyoman Kartika (43) of Banjar Bumbungan in Klungkung who died on January 4, 2011, within hours of his admission to the Denpasar General hospital. Kartika was bitten by a dog three months before his hospitalization and had not been treated with the required vaccine following the canine attack.
