Provisional Information on Selected Notifiable Diseases in the United States and on

Deaths in Selected Cities for Week Ended October 7, 1961


Poliomyelitis A total of 68 cases of poliomyelitis,
45 paralytic, has been reported for the current week ending
October 7. During the previous week, a total of 67 cases,
including 36 paralytic, was reported.
The low incidence during 1961 compared to previous
years is shown in the following table:


Polio (Cumulated Weekly) Through 40th Week
for Post Five Years
1961 1960 1959 1958

Total 983 2420 6657 4139


1957
1688
5103


The poliomyelitis incidence through September is
lower for 1961 than for a comparable period in any pre-
vious year since 1912 (see graph on page 2).
A new concentration of cases has been noted in
Newberry County, South Carolina, where 19 cases, 15
paralytic, have occurred this year. Fourteen of the 19
have had onset since September (see Epidemiological
Reports).
Only 5 of the 14 cases reported from New York State
were from the Syracuse area where the tri-county outbreak
is diminishing in intensity. The last reported case from
this tri-counry area had onset of disease on September 24.

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report


INCIDENCE OF POLIOMYELITIS IN THE UNITED STATES

JANUARY- SEPTEMBER, 1912-1961


'20 '25 '30 '35 '40 '45 '50 "'55 '60
YEARS *PRELIMINARY


The other New York cases are scattered throughout the
State. Pennsylvania this week reported 2 polio cases, one
paralytic and one nonparalytic. Of the 7 unspecified cases
reported from Erie County, Pennsylvania, last week, only
2 were paralytic while 5 were nonparalytic.
Not included in this week's telegraphic report is a
late report from New England. A cluster of 4 paralytic
and 4 nonparalytic cases has been noted in Windsor
County, Vermont, and adjoining Sullivan County, New
Hampshire. The cases have all had onsets during Sep-
tember. Of the 8 cases, 5 are unvaccinated. Type I polio-
virus was isolated from one adult who died. Additional
laboratory studies are in progress.


Hepatitis The number of hepatitis cases reported in
the last week varied little from what had been reported
the preceding week. A total of 1,151 cases was reported
for the 40th week; there were 1,111 cases reported for
the 39th week. The number of cases of hepatitis reported
weekly has remained approximately the same since the
beginning of July.


Diphtheria Ten cases of diphtheria were reported for
the last week. This is approximately one-third the median
figure reported for the 40th week from 1956 through 1960.

Encephalitis The 55 cases of infectious encephalitis
reported this last week represent the largest number of
cases reported in one week since October 1, 1960, when
60 cases were reported. Twenty-one of the current cases
were reported from New York City. It is unlikely that
these represent cases of arthropod-borne encephalitis.


EPI DEMIOLOGICAL REPORTS

Poliomyelitis South Carolina
Nineteen cases of poliomyelitis, 15 of which are
paralytic, have occurred in Newberry County, South
Carolina since June of this year. All but 5 of the cases
had onsets of disease after September 1.(see graph page 8).
Seventeen of the cases occurred in Negroes and
fifteen of the nineteen had no history of having received

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.

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 States 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 I shows the
States reporting these diseases. When diseases of rare
occurrence are reported by a State (cholera, dengue,
plague, louse-borne relapsing fever, smallpox, louse-
borne epidemic typhus, and fellow fever) this is noted
below table 1.
