An area of just over 3 kilometers from Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, was declared standby for the possibility of rabies in that place.
Two park employees were scratched by wild cats with disease in a parking lot located outside the park, said a Disney spokesman.
The cat was arrested and determined that he was the bearer of the rabies virus, which was fatal if not handled on time.
For this reason, the Orange, Florida Health Department warns park visitors to monitor the intersection between Interstate 4 and Epcot Center Drive.
Authorities warn that the cat may have infected other animals such as wild cats, wild dogs and wild animals such as raccoons, bats, foxes, skunks, wild cats and coyotes, so people who suffer from animal scratches or bites must attend. Hurry up to the doctor.
Although warnings cover only a small part of the amusement park, the authorities point out that this should not provide wrong security in other areas, so it is recommended that the closest population stay away from animals.
Anger can be deadly if not handled on time. Since symptoms appear for weeks, when the disease has spread to the brain, at that time it causes death in almost all cases.
But if you visit a doctor quickly, you can determine whether you are a carrier of the virus and start treatment with the rabies vaccine.
