EU-wide rabies alert

"THE European Commission issued an EU-wide rabies alert today after a dog was found carrying the deadly disease in southwest France, where hundreds of thousands of tourists have spent the summer holidays.

The EU executive took the rare step warning all European Union governments, to ensure that recently-returned holidaymakers were aware of the case, in particular visitors to a number of local festivals this month.

The risk of infection was heightened because the dog was infectious for nearly three weeks from the start of August until it died a week ago, Brussels said."
