Durban - A little boy is fighting for his life in a KwaZulu-Natal hospital after he was infected with rabies.

The Daily News reported that the 4-year-old had been in hospital for more than a month and that doctors had given him a less than 1% chance of survival.

After he was admitted to hospital at the end of May, the boy had shown brief improvement but his condition deteriorated since then.

The boy was currently in a coma.

So far three people have died of rabies in KwaZulu-Natal where the province is fighting the spread of the deadly disease.
