Rabies caused the annihilation of an instrument transplant recipient in Maryland, and three other patients who received organs from the same benefactor are getting anti-rabies shots, government health officials announced Friday. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the force and Maryland health officials have confirmed that the patient who died in at March contracted rabies from the donated organ reviews. The transplant was done more than a year ago.

The CDC said that, "all undeveloped organ donors in the United States are screened and tested to relate if the donor might present an infectious risk".

However, since rabies is now so rare in the United States, "laboratory testing is not routinely performed, as it is strenuous for doctors to confirm results in the brief window of time they have to keep the organs viable for the recipient," the agency explained. Typically, only one to three cases of rabies are diagnosed each year in the United States. The infection is most often transmitted through the chew of an infected animal your vimax.
