It is pertinent to mention that in the last 10 months in Sindh, more than 100,000 people have become victims of stray dog bites.

Any person who is bitten by a stray dog should be immediately given immunoglobulin and four to five doses of the anti-rabies vaccine, experts say, to prevent the affected person from developing rabies encephalitis, which is a hundred percent lethal and incurable disease.
