Tourist alert after 100 die from rabies; BALI.

PEOPLE travelling to Bali have been warned to be on the alert after an outbreak of rabies.

A total of 100 lives have already been lost on the Indonesian island.

The Tropical Medical Bureau has urged people to be more cautious before they travel and get themselves vaccinated.

Dr Graham Fry said: "I have been in contact with two of our patients who were exposed to animals while on holiday in Bali.

"They had to leave to go to Singapore to receive their post-exposure treatment leading to extra expense and their travel plans being upset."

The vaccine is not easily available on the island due to massive demand over the past year.
