Hello there...., I went through your query....Nothing to worry ...You can catch rabies only if you are bitten by an infected animal and haven't been vaccinated..... Rabies can be spread to humans from infected animals through a bite, scratch or lick to broken skin, the mouth or the eye. You may also be at risk if an animal spits in your face. In very rare cases, rabies can be spread during an organ transplant....
