SPRINGFIELD – An Illinois organ transplant recipient is receiving anti-rabies shots after another recipient from the same donor died of the disease.
Illinois Department of Public Health spokeswoman Melaney Arnold says the patient has no rabies symptoms, but began treatment on Thursday.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday that four people received donated organs from a man unknowingly infected with rabies.
