Page 81: Rabies: I don't know if it is intentional or not (several of us gave feedback on it but it could easily have been lost in the shuffle), but rabies is such a special disease it should be a rarity, and have its own rules: can only be cured by a vaccine, which must be administered within the incubation period, which is close to a month - otherwise death (and a horrible one at that) is (almost) certain. In fact, it should be a scenario "thread" rather than some random encounter - as stated it is wrong from a medical perspective. The encounter "rabid dogs" can easily be changed to "famished dogs".

Thing is, merely famished dogs aren’t anywhere near as aggressive, so making that substitution would just replace one error with another.
I think this is one of those instances where Ligan has intentionally chosen to forgo the factual realism and gone with the commonly accepted trope for flavour.
Besides, rabies is rare here and now — what’ll it be after three years of defunct border controls and quarantine regulations?
