Rabies virus

The rabies virus belongs to the family of Rhabdoviruses (rhabdo: wand) and to the genus Lyssavirus (lyssa from the lud root: violent and madness).


This virus can have three forms: an elongated shell shape, a round shape, a filamentous shape. It does not have a polyA cap or tail. This microorganism is between 130 and 300 nm long with a diameter of 60 to 80 nm.

The rabies virus is neurotropic: it infects the nervous system and affects its functioning. Once the signs are declared, the progression is towards a coma and death (often by respiratory arrest) in a few hours to a few days. With the exception of a few cases, the outcome is always fatal when the disease is declared.


Rabies is a deadly zoonotic disease that still affects 55,000 people a year worldwide (mainly in Africa and Asia). The virus is transmitted by biting, scratching or licking wounds from an infected animal in its saliva. Fortunately, there are effective ways to fight the disease, but the easiest way is to get vaccinated! There is no treatment per se, but there is vaccination, which is only a preventive treatment, given before the virus reaches the brain to stimulate the immune system.
