Can Rabies be transmitted by a secondary object?

0

Rabies has never been transmitted from a secondary object such as the ground where a rabid animal was lying. Tools used in picking up the animal or a stick used to push an animal into a bag, for example, should NOT be considered dangerous once any saliva present has dried. It would be sensible to use precautions such as wearing gloves when handling a suspect rabid animal’s body, or to take precautions to prevent saliva from contacting the eyes or mouth.
