A 11-year-old boy has been hospitalized gravely in Child Infectious Diseases Municipal Hospital after being bitten by a dog.
The minor, who is living in a suburb of Chisinau, is diagnosed with rabies. Meanwhile, doctors say that the boy has hallucinations and convulsions.
He got bitten in June but his parents only brought him to hospital now as he got worse.
