The dog also died within a few days afterwards at the end of March.
The city’s Preventive Medicine Centre recommends that people who regularly come in contact with infected dogs should get rabies vaccinations.
It also coordinates with the Animal Health Division to vaccinate dogs against rabies around the city.
Dr Le Hong Nga of the Preventive Medicine Centre said the rabies virus is transmitted through bites by infected animals, mostly dogs and cats.
Rabies is a dangerous infectious disease with a very high mortality rate, but it can be prevented and treated by using vaccines and anti-rabies serum.
