The death toll from an outbreak of rabies on Indonesia’s Bali tourist resort reached 100 on October 15th after a 40-year-old villager died overnight of the disease after he was hospitalized. The outbreak began in 2008, with officials killing some 200,000 stray dogs and vaccinating others against rabies. Several countries have issued travel advisories advising their nationals to be vaccinated against the disease and to avoid dogs roaming the country’s beaches.
