Pharyngeal injection was usually present, without exuda-
tion or vesiculation. The uvula was particularly injected
and edematous. The illness lasted two to five days.
Laboratory studies are in progress.


Colorado Respiratory disease has been prevalent
in Pueblo and Colorado Springs since late October, with
100-150 cases occurring each week. Several serologic
titer rises to Influenza B have been obtained. In Durango,
a town of 7000 population in the southwest corner of
Colorado, approximately 700 cases of acute respiratory
disease occurred in one week in early December. Fifty
percent of the children in the largest school (685 students)
are known to have been ill during the week. Epidemiologic
and laboratory investigations are being carried out.


Missouri A sharp outbreak of respiratory disease
is occurring in Potosi, Missouri. Eight hundred of ap-
proximately 2400 students are affected. The outbreak is
characterized by high fever, sore throat, nausea, and
vomiting. It lasts about 5 days. School children and young
adults are the population groups most affected by the
disease. Absenteeism at two shoe factories in the town
has been estimated at 15 percent. Serologic studies are
in progress.
St. Louis and Jefferson City have recently noted
influenza-like disease among school children with in-
creased absenteeism.
(Contrnued on page 8)


California Epidemics of acute respiratory illness
have been observed throughout the State, affecting pre-
dominantly the school age population. Serologic titer
rises to Influenza B have been obtained from patients in
the following six counties: Sonoma, San Francisco, Santa
Clara, Santa Cruz, Monterey, and Los Angeles.


Oregon The 'outbreaks of upper respiratory and
gastroenteric disease beginning in November in the
Portland area have extended to involve communities
throughout the western part of the State and outbreaks are
now reported in Eastern Oregon. Surveillance of industrial
absenteeism in the Portland area indicates scattered
cases of influenza-like disease among employees with
notably increased absenteeism in one company only.
Intensive laboratory studies on throat washings and stool
specimens have not yet uncovered an etiologic agent.


Washington State Seven counties scattered widely
throughout the State report outbreaks of respiratory dis-
ease. Several schools in each of these counties have
reported 20 percent absenteeism. In Lewis County, clini-
cal evaluation of 37 patients, 22 of school age, eight
adults, and three in the pre-school group was reported.
The predominant symptoms found were retro-orbital head-
ache, sore throat, cough, and conjunctivitis. Other symp-
toms experienced by at least 20 percent of the patients
were photophobia, coryza, abdominal pain, and myalgia.

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report


The chart shows the number of deaths reported for
117 major cities of the United States by week for the cur-
rent year, a 5-week moving average of these figures
plotted at the central week, and an adjusted average for
comparison. For each region the adjusted average was
computed as follows: From the total deaths reported each
week for the years 1956-1960, 3 central figures were
selected by eliminating the highest and lowest figure
reported for that week. A 5-week moving average of the
arithmetic mean of the 3 central figures was then com-
puted with adjustment to allow for population growth in
each region. The average value of the regional increases
was 2 percent which was incorporated in the adjusted
average shown in the chart.
Table 4 shows the number of death certificates re-


ceived during the week indicated for deaths that occurred
in selected cities. Figures compiled in this way, by week
of receipt, usually approximate closely the number of
deaths occurring during the week. However, differences
are to be expected because of variations in the interval
between death and receipt of the certificate and because
of incomplete reporting due to holidays or vacations. If a
report is not received from a city in time to be included
in the total for the current week, an estimate is used.
The number of deaths in cities of the same size may
also differ because of variations in the age, race, and sex
composition of the populations and because some cities
are hospital centers serving the surrounding areas. Changes
from year to year in the number of deaths may be due in
part to population increases or decreases.

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report


Illinois Several towns in the southernmost part of
Illinois have a high prevalence of school absenteeism.
Acute blood specimens have been collected.

Florida Increased school absenteeism has been
reported from Broward County in South Florida, and from
Flagler and Duval Counties in Northeast Florida. Re-
ported previously was an outbreak of Type B influenza
among school bus riders in Miami.

International Notes
Saskatchewan The epidemic of respiratory disease
which began in November in Regina may now be con-
sidered to be province-wide in extent. A third influenza-
associated death was reported, apparently from a ful-
minating viral pneumonia in a 36-year-old male.

United Kingdom Several outbreaks of Influenza B
have occurred in November and early December in dif-
ferent parts of the United Kingdom. Cities where In-
fluenza B has been identified are Belfast, Ireland; Car-
marthen, Wales; Oxford and Manchester, England.
Information for this summary was obtained from:
Dr. Emory Johnson, Division of Indian Health, U. S. Pub-
lic Health Service; Dr. Jack B. Eason, Arizona State
Department of Health; Dr. Henry Renteln, California State
Department of Public Health; Dr. Grant Skinner, Oregon
State Board of Health; Dr. Ernest Ager and Dr. John
Francis, Washington State Department of Health; Dr.
Cecil S. Mollohan, Colorado State Department of Public
Health; Dr. Norman J. Rose, Illinois Department of Pub-
lic Health; Dr. James O. Bond, Florida State Board of
Health; Dr. E. W. R. Best, Department of National Health
and Welfare, Ottawa, Canada; Dr. H. G. Pereira, World
Influenza Center, London, England.

Hepatitis The number of hepatitis cases reported
this week continues at a level approximately ten percent
greater than that reported last year. The increased inci-
dence this season is apparent in all except the Mountain
and Pacific districts. An increasing proportion of hepa-
titis cases among adults in California has been observed
in recent weeks. This is the only State in Which the pro-
portion of adult cases significantly exceeds a 50 percent
level.

SOURCE AND NATURE OF MORBIDITY DATA

These provisional data are based on reports to the
Public Health Service from the health departments of
each State and Puerto Rico. They give the total number
of cases of certain communicable diseases reported
during the week usually ended the preceding Saturday.
Total figures for the United Stares and the Pacific Divi-
sion include data for the States of Alaska and Hawaii.
Cases of anthrax, botulism, and rabies in man are not
shown in table 2, but a footnote to table 1 shows the
Stares reporting these diseases. When diseases of rare
occurrence are reported by a State (cholera, dengue,
plague, louse-borne relapsing fever, smallpox, louse-
borne epidemic rvphus, and yellow fever) this is noted
below table 1.
