    Does the passage sound natural in English?

    The following text sounds fluent in English. I wonder it is natural in English.

    We report rabies virus transmission among solid organ transplantation recipients in Changsha, China, in 2016. Two recipients were confirmed to have rabies and died. Our findings suggest that more attention should be paid to the possibility of rabies virus transmission through organ transplantation for clinical and public health reasons.

    I can't get your link to work.
    It's acceptable in a scientific paper. It's understandable and unambiguous. I've seen worse.

    I've edited the link. The context is its abstract (in fourth passage).

    It is OK, but I would have used Two recipients were confirmed to have had/contracted rabies and died.
