Animal rabies in Poland: epidemiological situation and methods of control.Parassitologia. 1988 Jan-Apr; 30(1):109-11.P
The epidemiological situation and methods of control of animal rabies in Poland are presented. Registered data on rabies cases for the period from 1948 up to 1986 are discussed. Two species of animals, namely dogs and foxes, have played the major role in the epidemics of rabies. The undertaken measures have proved satisfactory to control rabies due to dogs as a vector but were found inadequate to control wild-life rabies. Since 1967 the fox has been the main vector of the epizootics of rabies.
