Bali: Rabies Free by 2015?

The province of Bali is projected to be free of rabies by 2015, according to the spokesman for National Zoonosis Commission, Arief Rukmantara in Denpasar on Monday, December 10, 2012.

As reported by the National News Agency Antara, Rukmantara said: “We are optimistic at this projection (rabies free by 2015) because of the efforts undertaken by the provincial government and the strong support of the central government.”

The latest data from 2012 show that Bali has detected 90 rabies cases thus far in the year. This figure, however, does not mean that Bali is not optimistic in ridding the island of rabies by 2015.

“What needs to be done is to compare the case which have occurred at the end of 2012 with the downward trend from cases over the past few years, especially the year 2009 when the number of cases of rabies in Bali were high and were occurring sporadically,” he explained.

Still, with 90 cases in 2012, many are expressing doubts as to whether or not Bali can be truly rabies free by 2012.

Opposing this viewpoint, Rukmantara said such mindsets must be abandoned for they threaten to reduce the public's desire to work together to eliminate the disease.

Admitting there are many cases in Bali present in almost all villages, he points out that when compared with two or three years before, the number of cases has reduced dramatically.
