PROVISIONAL INFORMATION ON SELECTED NOTIFIABLE DISEASES IN THE UNI
DEATHS IN SELECTED CITIES FOR WEEK ENDED AUGUST 3, 1963


POLIOMYELITIS The 8 cases of poliomyelitis, 7 para-
lytic, reported during the current week represents a
remarkably low incidence of the disease, particularly
for this season of the year. Less than half as many
paralytic cases have been recorded this year as were
reported during a comparable period in 1962.

Only four States, Pennsylvania, Alabama, Louisiana,
California, have reported more than 10 paralytic cases
thus far this year. Focal outbreaks in and near Carlisle,
Pennsylvania, and Jasper, Alabama, have been countered
with intensive Type I oral vaccine programs. Cases
reported by Louisiana largely represent delayed reporting


from last year; California cases
scattered.

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report


HEPATITIS There were 677 cases of viral hepatitis
reported during the week ending August 3, 1963. This
compares to 737 cases recorded during a comparable
period last year. The seasonal low for 1963 was reached
during the week ending July 6, 1963. Based on previous
years' experience a continuing upward trend through the
rest of the year would be anticipated.
In the figure above, are shown the numbers of
reported cases of viral hepatitis by 4-week periods since
1954.
Since hepatitis incidence customarily demonstrates
a seasonal low in July, morbidity data can logically be
summarized on the basis of an epidemiological year
beginning in July and ending the following June. Attack
rates for the epidemiological years 1959-60 through 1962-
63 are given in the table (right).

While on a calendar year basis 1961 represents a sharp
peak in the nationwide incidence, one observes from the
table above that there were two epidemic waves of almost
equal magnitude over the period of 2 epidemiological
years, 1960-61 and 1961-62.


12 MONTH PERIOD JULY TO JUNE

1959-1960 1960-1961 1961-1962 1962-1963

Total Number
of Cases 30,436 64,267 61,461 45,538

Attack Rate
per 100,000 17.1 35.8 33.8 28.0



1962-63 represents a decreased incidence for the
nation as a whole. During 1962-63, however, an extensive
epidemic occurred in Maine which reported a rate of 202.5
cases per 100,000 population The only State to exceed
this rate since reporting was initiated was Alaska with a
rate of 217.0 per 100,000 in 1961-62.
Rates higher than the previous 3 years were also
experienced during 1962-63 in New Hampshire, Massachu-
setts, Connecticut, New York, and Louisiana. The only
States which have consistently reported rates below 20.0
per 100,000 during the past 4 years are Wisconsin, Okla-
homa, and Hawaii.

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report


INTERNATIONAL NOTES QUARANTINE MEASURES
Smallpox Poland

The outbreak of smallpox in Poland now totals 79
cases including 6 deaths according to information re-
ceived from the World Health Organization, Geneva, on
August 6, 1963.
The original importation apparently involved a Polish
man returning to Wroclaw (Breslau) from India on May 25.
He was in good health on arrival, becoming ill shortly
thereafter. Subsequently, six secondary cases developed
among contacts before his illness was recognized as
smallpox. The first recognized case occurred in a child
with a previous history of chickenpox.
Up to July 29, 36 suspect cases, 10 confirmed, and
six deaths were reported from Wroclaw. Several cases
involved Health Department personnel who cared for the
secondary cases before the diagnosis of smallpox was
entertained.


In addition to the Wroclaw cases, official reports
indicate four cases in Opole and one suspect case in
Wieruszos, which was transferred to that city from
Wroclaw. Unofficial reports indicate that cases are also
occurring in Warsaw.
SDates of onset, vaccination status of cases, and
other pertinent information are not as yet available.
However, from appraisal of the date of entry of the im-
ported case and the numbers of cases subsequently
reported, it would appear that the epidemic has involved
at least four generations of transmission. Mass vaccina-
tion efforts, as well as strict enforcement of border quar-
antine regulations, are said to be operative in Poland.
The last previous importation of smallpox into
Poland occurred in May 1962, when a crew member of the
S. S. Indian Resolve was found to have smallpox. Subse-
quently, 70 cases occurred in crew members and four
cases among Polish guards and a quarantine official
in contact with the crew.


INFANT DEATHS IN 108 CITIES

The ~eekly average number of infant deaths in 108
cities for the four-week period ending August 3 was 762
as compared with an expected weekly average of 734.
