    Only way is to get bitten: rats, dogs, cats, any animal. AND then not report it right away and get the shots!!! All public hospitals have rabies kits and the vaccine that can be administered. This is endemic here...the doctors know this.

    That is the stupidity. You can't wash the bacteria away, it won't go away. AS soon as clinical symptoms appear you are dead!

    The guy went the clinic at the resort 3 times. Perhaps the fault lies with the doctors. We don't know what he told the doctors.

    Then the incompetence is more wide-spread:

    "I got this bite and it hurts"!

    What bit you?

    "I think it was a (name animal)"

    Where is the (animal)?

    "I don't know."

    Sir, you need to take a series of shots in case the animal was rabid.

    "Naw, It's just a scratch!"

    Well, it's your funeral! (And it will be!)

    Unless of course the resort did not have a real doctor on staff, or they had a foreign doctor with no experience in the tropics...
    It seems to me that a major lawsuit is in the works against the incompetent work at the clinic. No kidding! Sorry for the guy, but in this case a lack of knowledge caused his death.

    Hmm, a clinic at a resort?
    Which resort?
    Was it the resort where he worked as a bartender?
    Are there cute little bats (thatched roofs...)?

    He's not dead yet but the article states that those who do survive usually suffer severe neurological damage.
