​Today, (19.6.2017) a positive result was obtained for the jackal found in an agricultural area between the fish pond, north-east of the locality of Hamadiya and the Jordan River. 
Anyone who has been in contact with a jackal in the area is requested to urgently visit the Health Bureau (closest to the place of residence) to consider providing preventative treatment for rabies prevention.
 
Parents of children are asked to clarify with their children whether they have been in contact with suspicious animals and contact the Office of Health.
 
The Ministry of Health once again reminds someone who has been bitten or scratched by an animal, immediately rinse the area with running water and soap, disinfect with disinfectants and go to the Health Office to see if there is a need for preventive treatment against rabies.
