Svay Rieng, Cambodia News: On April 17, 2019, a person with account name Sor Sineth posted on social media that a man died of rabies a week after he was bitten by a cat. He passed away on the way to the hospital, Tropeang Sakon village, Romeas Hek district, Svay Rieng. The victim was identified as Pov Mol, 32-year-old.

According to the victim's wife, Hem Sinoun, 26-year-old, her husband was bitten by a cat while they were visiting his parent's house. The authorities told him to go to the hospital for treatment but he didn't go.
Then, about a week later, on April 16, the victim was suffering from fever and became delirious, afraid of water, air, and light. After that, his cousin took him to the hospital, but it was too late and the victim passed away before he got there. RIP.

Such a shame, RIP.

Incidentally, how much is a rabies shot in KOW?

The most deadly virus - one week incubation period is very rare. I fucking hate the street dogs walking everywhere and sniffing my feet.

Cheap. Got bitten my a cat a couple of years ago and got my shots in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia (travelling at the time). Nowhere did I pay more than 10 Dollars.

Is that for a Rabies vaccination pre-bite or for treatment post-bite?

Vaccine is one or two.

Post bite, you need a series, so about 6.

Ah yes, I believe prices went up this year. I needed 5 shots. Up to $10,000 for the course in the USA:
