“As soon as we were diagnosed with rabies, we took samples for testing. According to the results, the samples sent for testing was negative for rabies. Based on the scientific basis and the incubation period, we exclude the possibility that Long passed away due to rabies. The cause of death is due to other tests, he said.
Previously, on October 28, Long was bitten by a dog. After that, he had some signs related to rabies, so he was transferred to Da Nang Hospital for treatment. On November 25, he went to the Preventive Medicine Center to get vaccinated and serum. About five days later, he was transferred to the hospital. However, his health became worse. On 6-12, Long passed away. However, after the regrettable case, people still thought that he passed away because of rabies.
