From 2016 to 2021, two cases of rabies encephalitis were diagnosed and hospitalized at the Kiffa hospital center. Neither of them had started the rabies vaccination after the dog bites before symptoms appeared. In countries where rabies still occurs, health workers should be trained for an efficient management of dog.
