    Ok, so it’s still at about 99.9999999% death rate, but at least there’s some hope. Or I hope there’s hope.
    As usual, RadioLab did a fantastic job on their skit in to the world of Rabies and the example they’ve used is the 2004 rabies case of Jeanna Giese, who was the first person to have been infected with rabies, didn’t realize it in time for vaccine to be effective, and lived.

    But the road to her survival was nothing short of a miracle (in human decision sense). I would want nothing more than to spoil it for you, but you must listen to this podcast, the interviews, the sound from the people with rage stage was blood curdling, and I can’t add that to a blog post.
