Is post-exposure prophylaxis necessary if someone is bitten by a monkey?

0

If the monkey bite occurred in a rabies endemic area, the monkey should be tested by a reliable rabies diagnostic laboratory to determine if the animal was infected with rabies. If this is not possible, the bitten person should seek medical advice and undergo post-exposure prophylaxis according to the current WHO recommendations.
