Hello, it's raining today. I went to the outpatient department of the hospital, which will receive patients with dog injury. When I was seeing a doctor (pharyngitis), I put my wet umbrella on the ground. Now I'm worried that the liquid left by thousands of dog injured patients in dealing with the wound, with rabies virus, will stick to my umbrella. I had a small cut on my finger and touched the water on the umbrella. Will it be infected with rabies virus.
Hello, the rabies virus will not survive after leaving the host and being exposed to the air. What you said is in the hospital clinic. If you put a wet umbrella on the ground, the rabies virus will not survive on the ground. If you have a wound on your finger and touch the water on the umbrella, it will not lead to the infection of rabies virus
Rabies is likely to be infected only when the skin is bitten or scratched by dogs and other drugs. These conditions described by you will not be infected. At ordinary times, take more outdoor sports to enhance body resistance and eat more foods with high protein content. Keep a relaxed and happy mood and don't think nonsense.
Generally, if you are scratched or bitten by cats, dogs and other pets, you may be infected with rabies virus when there are open wounds and bleeding. It doesn't matter if you don't have direct contact in this case. Don't worry too much, and the probability of rabies is relatively low.
