Authorities overwhelmed by rabies testing (2013/07/26)


Rabies fears and reports of infected animals have overloaded Taiwan’s only laboratory capable of testing for the disease. It was left racing to test an influx of samples sent for analysis. 

As of Friday morning, the Animal Health Research Institute has tested 28 dead animals for rabies. Four ferret-badgers from Nantou, Yunlin and Taitung counties were confirmed to be infected, and another nine carnivores were sent for testing from across Taiwan after biting people, leaving the institute’s director worried about how many more will come.

Tsai Hsiang-jung
Animal Health Research Institute
We plan to add six more workers to the labs, just in case, and to vaccinate them, just in case.

Some suspect that since only ferret-badgers have been confirmed infected, this may be a rabies virus variant that poses no threat to dogs, cats or human beings. But the Animal Health Research Institute was quick to reject such speculation.

Tsai Hsiang-jung
Animal Health Research Institute
Gene sequencing shows that this [virus] has an 80 to 90 percent similarity to rabies. Our tests for antigens, including immunochemical staining, came out positive, so our conclusion is that this is certainly rabies.

The quarantine bureau says that enough rabies vaccinations for up to 3,000 people are due to arrive from France on Aug. 2. Priority for the vaccinations will be given to veterinarians and others at the forefront of prevention efforts.

狂犬病最新

狂犬病疫情造成人心惶惶,全台通報多起動物死亡,或咬傷人的案例。這陣子湧進28件檢體,讓全台唯一可以檢驗狂犬病的國家實驗室,家畜試驗所快忙翻了。由於檢體,每件都要用最急件處裡,所長擔心人手會不夠用。

根據家衛所統計,到今天上午為止,已處理28隻動物。其中來自南投,雲林,台東總共4隻鼬獾,都被驗出有狂犬病毒。其他來自不同地方咬人的9隻食肉科動物也被送來。家衛所擔心後續會有更多可疑病例,檢驗人力會不足!

[家畜衛生試驗所所長 蔡向榮]
“以防萬一,我們打算再增加6位(實驗室)同仁,並接種狂犬病疫苗,以防萬一”

有專家指出,這次除了鼬獾外,沒看到其他動物染病,質疑這次病毒,可能是對人、狗、貓沒威脅性的'類狂犬病病毒',家衛所做出反駁。

[家畜衛生試驗所所長 蔡向榮]
“在做基因序列分析的時候,那(跟狂犬病)相似度是80%~92%,加上我們這個免疫化學染色法,這些針對抗原的檢測,也都是陽性,所以綜合判斷,認為他就是狂犬病的病毒”

防檢局宣布,已從法國進口人用狂犬病疫苗一萬劑,預計8/2抵台,可供最多三千人使用。疫苗到位後,將免費優先提供給第一線防疫人員,獸醫師等四大對象。
