and another question that i have is, it's actually 147 days passed from that scenario.
Now my question is there any chance that might my dad got it on the first place ? (if he contracted with the saliva on phone).
there was no any symptoms after 147.
and another question is will i get rabies from him if i share cup or his toothbrush contracts with mine ? (i say again, there is no symptoms after 147 days)
