In most parts of the Western world, you no longer have to worry much about catching rabies. Sure, the virus is still out there, but it’s nowhere near as common as it used to be. Sadly, that’s not the case in other parts of the world.
When humans contract rabies, the disease is devastating and almost always deadly unless immediate action is taken. Among the many symptoms of rabies is a severe aversion to water known as hydrophobia. Those suffering from rabies often experience extreme difficulty swallowing, and they panic when presented with liquids. Watch what happens when this hydrophobic man tries to take a drink.
