California Encephalitis Ohio
A total of 11 cases of encephalitis with laboratory
evidence of infection with California virus has been re-
ported from Ohio since July 14, 1966. Ages of these patients
were between 21 months and 14 years. All lived in either

(Reported by Dr. Calvin B. Spencer, Acting State Epi-

POLIOMYELITIS OUTBREAK Texas


To date in 1966 a total of 65 cases of paralytic polio-
myelitis has been reported in the United States. Of these,
53 (including one delayed report) are from the State of
Texas; 9 in this total have been reported since the week
ending August 13 (M\Ml i'. Vol. 15, No. 32).
Cases have been reported from 22 counties in Texas
(Figure 1) which have a combined population of approxi-
mately 1.9 million. There were 3 cases with onset in
January, 4 in April, 11 in May, 12 in June. 16 in July, and
7 in August. The onset date for the latest case reported
was August 23. The seven. cases with onsets in August
lived in five counties scattered in south central Texas:
Bexar-2, Gonzales-1, McLennan-1, Nueces-2. Runnels-1.
In past years, outbreaks of poliomyelitis in Texas have
waned in September.
All of the 53 cases were in preschool age children
except for one 7' r ,.li child. Three cases occurred in
Negro children, and most of the other cases have been in
Caucasian children of Latin American origin. There have
been two deaths.
Type I poliovirus has been implicated by viral studies
in 25 of the 26 Texas cases studied to date; poliovirus
studies were negative in one case. In 10 cases no labora-
tory specimens were obtained. Viral studies are pending
in the remaining 17 cases.
Forty-two cases had never received any poliomyelitis
vaccine. Only seven cases had ever received any type I
oral vaccine prior to infection. Four of these cases had
received a single dose of trivalent oral vaccine; one per-
son was given the dose 3 days before onset. The remain-
ing three cases had received one dose of monovalent type I,
oral vaccine; one was given the dose only one day prior
to onset. In addition, one child had been given a primary
series of inactivated vaccine.
Approximately 145,000 doses of trivalent poliomye-
litis vaccine have been distributed by the Texas State

in the 22 counties that have reported poliomyelitis cases
this year. Mass poliomyelitis immunization campaigns
have been conducted in Ector, Kleberg and Wilson coun-

in Webb County. The Texas Medical Association has sug-

BAT RABIES Continued front, page 311)


Eight cases of bat rabies were reported in the U.S.
during the first quarter of 1966. followed by b S cases in
(.he second quarter. This sharp rise in the second quarter
of 1966 corresponds to data accumulated over the past 13
years. In Table 1. which presents the reported cases of
bat rabies in the U.S. by month from 1953-1965, a seasonal
increase in incidence during the summer months is evi-
dent. The months oflowest incidence are December through
March, followed by a buiid-up from April through July with
peak occurrence in August and September.
This summer increase in bat rabies can be associated
with the increase in hat populations during this season.
This build-up is probably due to the return of migratory
bats from tropical areas, to the arousal of hibernating
bats, and to the new population of bats born in May, June,
and early July. It is not known how these newborn bats
become infected with rabies.

(Reported by the Rabies Control Unit, Veterinary Section,
Eptidemiology Branch, CDC.)


Editorial Note:
Any person bitten by a bat should be considered as
having been exposed to a rabid animal. Treatment recom-
mended for exposure to any rabid animal is discussed in
the WHO guide for Rabies Post-Exposure Treatment.1
