It seems that just about every day the government of Australia is issuing warnings about travel to Bali. Each one of course should be taken seriously. For about the umpteenth time the warning about Dengue Fever is one to take heed of. According to the article in the West Australian: Thousands of West Australians heading to Bali for the school holidays are being warned about potentially fatal infections, after an increase in dengue fever and people needing anti-rabies treatment.
The article then went on to express the Health Department’s views: The department said people who were bitten or scratched needed immediate medical treatment to clean the wound and often a course of injections when they returned home. Once symptoms developed, rabies was universally fatal.
