PELEGRINO CALLIS, Georgia Lucila; BUBAIRE ODIO, Ana; REYES MEDIACEJA, Reinaldo  and  DUCONGER CASTELLANOS, Rosa Delia. Reemergence of the animal rage since 2007 in Santiago de Cuba municip. MEDISAN [online]. 2017, vol.21, n.8, pp.978-986. ISSN 1029-3019.

A descriptive and cross-sectional study was carried out, to characterize some clinical and epidemiological variables of the animal rage notified during 2007, 2010, 2012 and 2015. The statistics of these zoonosis were obtained in the Municipal Unit of Hygiene and Epidemiology from Santiago de Cuba municipality. The positivity universe was constituted by 31 animals, with a prevalence of dogs (93,5%) and mongeese (6,4%). In 2007 the highest quantity in dogs was notified (15), and the most affected health area was that of "Frank País García" Polyclinic, with its popular councils Agüero-Mar Verde and Manuel Isla. Dogs without race prevailed (55,2%) and the rage rate was 6,4 every 100 000 dogs, which injured 73 people, (34 per year). These data show the risk of acquiring human rage, reason why the animal rage should be prevented
