September 28 marks the third annual World Rabies Day, an international event created to help raise rabies awareness and save lives. Despite major efforts to eradicate the virus, rabies remains a major concern worldwide, killing more than 55,000 people every year. In the United States one to two people die annually from the virus, and in 2007 more than 7,000 U.S. cases of animal rabies were reported. Dr. Benjamin Sun, Chair of the National Association of State Public Health Veterinarians Rabies Compendium Committee, talks about rabies.
