                Rabies epidemic needs to end, urges formation of federal-state committee to fight outbreak

                January 19, 2019, Saturday at 3:46 PM Jonathan Chia

                KUCHING: There is an urgent need for a joint federal-state emergency committee to help eradicate the rabies threat in Sarawak, says Batu Lintang assemblyman See Chee How.
                ...
                “It has now been 18 months since the first rabies positive case affecting humans was reported on June 30, 2017 and the first rabies positive cases in animals was reported on July 4, 2017.

                “The calamity has raged on for 18 months and claimed 16 precious lives and yet the state government appears not able to contain it and bring it to an end,” said See today.

                To date, 17 people have been confirmed to have been infected with the rabies virus, resulting in 16 deaths. The 17th victim is currently in a comatose state.
