aryland and North Carolina to identify people who were in close contact with the donor or the four organ recipients and might require treatment.

The CDC said that, "all potential organ donors in the United States are screened and tested to identify if the donor might present an infectious risk." However, since rabies is now so rare in the United States, "laboratory testing is not routinely performed, as it is difficult for doctors to confirm results in the short window of time they have to keep the organs viable for the recipient," the agency explained.

Typically, only one to three cases of rabies are diagnosed each year in the United States. The disease is most often transmitted through the bite of an infected animal. In the United States, bats, raccoons, skunks and foxes are the most commonly reported rabid animals.
