Vaccine Protects Against Lassa Fever And Rabies

UPI reports that a new vaccine has shown promise in protecting people from Lassa fever and rabies. According to the World Health Organization, the two viruses are major health risks in West Africa. Lassa is mainly spread to humans by Mastomys rats, while rabies is caused by bites or scratches from infected dogs. An estimated 100,000-300,000 people are infected annually with Lassa, mostly in Africa. Around 80 percent of exposures are mild and go unreported but serious cases of Lassa result in death.
