PROVISIONAL INFORMATION ON SELECTED NOTIFIABLE DISEASES IN THE UNITED STATES AND ON
DEATHS IN SELECTED CITIES FOR WEEK ENDED JUNE 30, 1962


POLIOMYELITIS During the week ending June 30, 1962,
19 cases of poliomyelitis, 16 paralytic, were reported for
the United States. Texas reported the largest proportion
of these with 10 cases, 7 paralytic. California reported
four cases (one with 1961 onset) and the States of New
York, Ohio, West Virginia,- Tennessee and Oregon ac-
counted for one each.
The cumulative totals through the 26th week for the
past 5 years are shown below. The totals in 1962 are
comparable to those of the record low year, 1961.

1962 1961 1960 1959 1958
Paralytic 158 155 346 694 333
Total 202 239 469 1,026 644


The six-week cumulative totals (21st thru 26th week) for
the past 5 years are shown below:

1962 1961 1960 1959 1958
Paralytic 66 48 131 357 149
Total 78 79 170 543 299

In Texas, the scene of poliomyelitis activity has
shifted from the Southern counties of Bexar (San Antonio)
and Webb (Laredo) where oral vaccine was administered
in late May and early June, to counties in the North and
East. Only one case, paralytic, was reported from Bexar
County. This child had not received the oral vaccine.
Harris County (Houston) reported two paralytic and
two non-paralytic cases this week. This brings the 1962

total of paralytic cases for this county up to 6. Viral
specimens from two early cases have yielded type I polio-
myelitis virus.
Dallas County (Dallas) reported three paralytic
cases, lifting their 1962 total to four. Virus isolations
have not been reported.

HEPATITIS The number of hepatitis cases reported for
the week ending June 30 fell to 712. It is notable that,
for the first time since the initiation of reporting of hepa-
titis cases over and under 20 years, the percentage of
adult cases (over 20 years) exceeded the percentage of
childhood (under 20 years) cases.



EPIDEMIOLOGICAL REPORTS

Vending Machine Salmonellosis Colorado

Between April 20 and 27, six adults in Denver, Colo-
rado, experienced a gastrointestinal illness severe enough
in four cases to warrant hospitalization. The illness was
characterized by fever, nausea, vomiting, abdominal
cramps, and diarrhea. All six cases were found to have
consumed .chocolate eclairs obtained from refrigerated,
automatic vending machines. Salmonella typhimurium was
cultured from stool samples of all the cases. Characteris-
tics of the cases are shown below. The 2 cases (Nos. 4


and 5) with short incubation periods had
partial gastrectomies in the past.


both undergone


Case Age Sex Onset of Symptoms Incubation Period
1 43 F 4/21 16 hours
2 33 M 4/25 12 hours
3 42 M 4/25 15 hours
4 45 M 4/27 7 3/4 hours
5 53 M 4/27 4 1/2 hours
6 40 M 4/27 9 hours

The food histories of all cases were identical with
regard to consumption of eclairs but varied widely in all
other respects. The eclairs consumed were obtained from
three different vending machines supplied by a single
bakery. Under questionable conditions of sanitation and
in quarters with evidence of rodents and cockroaches,
the bakery produced an average of 80 dozen eclairs each
day. Each of the bakeries' employees who handled food
in any of its stages of preparation was found to be free
from salmonella by stool culture.
Eclairs were prepared by using a commercial cream
filler and commercial icing. The pastry shell included
frozen eggs in its ingredients. These eclairs were pre-
pared, and individually wrapped, by 9:00 A.M. each morn-
ing and then were left at room temperature on trays until
collected by representatives of the companies purchasing
them. In no instance were the eclairs at the incriminated


vending machines delivered to machines until the follow-
ing morning, approximately 24 hours after the baking.
The S. typhimurium phage type from 2 of the patients
and from environmental samples of the bakery were the
same, Type C.
(Reported by Dr. J. D. McCluskie, Director, Environmental
Health Services, Dept. of Health & Hospitals, Denver,
Colorado.)

Influenza A2 Minnesota
Approximately 100 cases of Influenza A2 (Asian)
occurred in a Veterans Administration Hospital in Minne-
sota during the month of May. Cases were first noted in
the first week of May. The epidemic reached its peak in
the middle of the month and then gradually subsided.
Symptoms consisted of chills, fever, malaise, scratchy
sore throats, myalgia, cough, and occasional conjuncti-
vitis. The symptoms lasted several days; there were a few
cases of pneumonia but no deaths. Cases were most
common among hospital patients with an occasional case
among the staff and personnel, The staff and personnel
had been given polyvalent vaccine on a voluntary basis
last fall; no vaccine had been given to the patients on an
organized basis. Serologic evidence of Influenza A2 was
demonstrated in paired blood specimens from four patients
and Influenza A2 (Asian) virus was isolated from a throat
washing of one patient.
This outbreak represents the second reported Influ-
enza A2 (Asian) outbreak reported this year. The other
outbreak occurred in Bellingham, Washington, in March
1962 (See MMWR, Vol. 11, No. 12).
(Reported by D. S. Fleming, M.D., Director, Division of
Disease Prevention and Control, State of Minnesota
Department of Health, Minneapolis 14, Minnesota.)

Acute Gastroenteritis Aboard a Naval Vessel

An outbreak of 26 cases of acute gastroenteritis
occurred among the 247 officers and men aboard a U. S.
Navy destroyer during the 4 day period, March 18th through
21st, while the ship was berthed at Naples, Italy. The
illnesses were of one or two days duration and consisted
of one or more of the symptoms of nausea, vomiting,
diarrhea, and abdominal cramps. Many patients also ex-
perienced headache and malaise, and one had a slightly
elevated temperature.
No consistent associations were found between
onsets of illness and meals or other activities afloat or
ashore, and no ,sanitary discrepancies were found aboard
ship. Rectal swab cultures from 21 ill persons and 14
food service personnel were negative for pathogenic
bacteria.
Half of the cases (13) occurred among the 49 junior
enlisted men of one department, all of whom were berthed
together apart from the rest of the crew (attack rate of
26.5%). Of the remaining 13 cases, one was in an officer,

and 12 were randomly distributed among the 158 junior
men of the other departments of the ship (attack rate of
7.6%). The- cases in the one department appeared approxi-
mately one day before the others.

DATES OF ONSET BY 6-HOUR PERIODS


Of particular interest is the fact that 2 of the 5
epidemic investigators subsequently developed the ill-
ness. They were the only 2 of the investigating team to
enter the berthing spaces. One developed symptoms 12
hours and the other 19 hours following entry of the ship.
It was concluded that the outbreak was probably viral
in etiology, with a short incubation period, and with
person-to-person spread.

ologist, and Capt. Sidney A. Britten, MC, USN, Officer
in Charge, U. S. Navy Preventive Medicine Unit #7.)
