A Briton has died after contracting rabies while on holiday in Morocco, health officials have said.

Public Health England said the victim became infected after being bitten by a cat.

PHE issued a reminder to travellers to avoid coming into contact with animals when in rabies-affected countries.

Rabies is not found in wild or domestic animals in the UK, but five Britons became infected between 2000 and 2017 after "animal exposures abroad".

Cat bites are dangerous in general and with a high risk for an infection/sepsis so its recommended to visit a doctor.

Far worse than dog bites.  Even cats can become septic from bites by other cats.  I'm not sure why that is but they must carry potent bacteria in the mouth.
