農政部(DA)の地域動物疾病診断研究所は、Zamboanga市で本年(2014年)1月から5月までに狂犬病の9の確定症例を記録した。DAの地域狂犬病調整官のDr Frans Queは、狂犬病の確定症例は8の村(Upper Calarian, Sta Maria, Cawit, Canelar, Talisayan, Tetuan, Tumaga, と2症例の Guiwan)

Que advised the public to immediately submit the head of the dog for laboratory analysis once the canine dies “after biting them” or any member of the family. He said it is important to subject the dog’s head to a laboratory analysis since the result would serve as basis or guide on how to manage the patient. The laboratory test is for free of
charge and the result could be known in a day’s time, Que said.
