Rabies is almost always a fatal disease, transmitted to humans through animal bites & scratches. Around 55,000 cases are contracted worldwide every year.

The most common cause of rabies is a dog bite in a country where rabies is common (it is not found in UK dogs). Some wild bats in the UK carry rabies, & it is also found in cats, mongooses, jackals, foxes, & raccoons. All mammals can carry rabies.
If you are bitten by an animal in a location known to have rabies infections, wash the wound immediately with soap & running water, flushing the wound with the water for 10-15 minutes. Then disinfect it with alcohol or antiseptic, leave it uncovered, & seek immediate medical attention.
