Populations of a number of species of the orders Carnivora and Chiroptera maintain independent rabies
epidemics in different parts of the world. However, in large parts of Africa, Asia, and Latin America, rabid
dogs outnumber diagnosed wildlife cases. Rabies virus variants circulating in different host populations
can be distinguished by the use of monoclonal antibodies and by genomic analysis. Rabies virus strains
and their hosts have to be co-adapted in order to allow their prolonged co-existence.
