Abstract: Rabies is a fatal but preventable zoonosis occurs in most parts of the world resulting in loss of thousands of lives. Most deaths occur in developing countries due to lack of awareness regarding the cause, vector, pre-exposure and post exposure prophylaxis. This article represents some common questions about rabies and its occurrence, mortality, trending diagnosis, treatment and prevention as elimination of rabies throughout the world would save thousands of lives and would reduce the economic impact of the disease by reducing the requirement for pre and post exposure prophylaxis.
