4. Agitation

Another symptom of rabies is that the patient can become very agitated very easily, and it is also known to cause animals to become very aggressive. Indeed, the word rabies is taken from the Latin word rabies, which translates into English as ‘madness’. That it makes animals more aggressive also makes them more likely to bite, thus increasing the spread of the disease.

The patient may also experience heightened anxiety, and they may also become hyperactive. Patients with rabies are also likely to experience heightened confusion, and they can struggle to even know where they are and who they are with.
