(7/25/2011)

The national government remains optimistic that Bali will reach the target of becoming free of new rabies cases by 2012, permitting Bali to once again be declared  officially“rabies-free” in 2015.

Such optimism may not be misplaced. Indications exist that rabies may be on the decline in Bali.

Beritabali.com reports, from a high of 266 villages in Bali with known cases of rabid animal, that number is now reduced to only 44 villages.

The Director General of Livestock and Animal Health from the Agricultural Ministry, Prabowo, speaking in Mengwi, Bali on Friday, July 22, 2011, said that the scope of vaccinations now underway show heartening results with more than 80% of dogs on the island now treated.

Prabowo added: “Mass vaccination is now in its second phase and it is hoped that the third phase will take place in early 2012 after which, hopefully, there will be no new cases of rabies.”

Prabowo estimates that the number of dogs vaccinated will soon reach 90%.

Data from the Bali Livestock Service estimates a population of 360,000 dogs living on the island.
