Hepatitis The current weekly total of 1,611 cases
represents a slight increase over the 1,535 cases reported
last week. The tabulation of hepatitis cases by age ap-
pears on page 8. Notable adult concentrations continue
particularly in the Eastern Seaboard States of Massachu-
setts, Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey, but are
also evident in Minnesota, Washington, and New Mexico.

Poliomyelitis Reported this week from seven different
States were 9 cases, 6 of which were paralytic. An addi-
tional paralytic case was reported by the Commonwealth
of Puerto Rico. This week's cases bring the total in 1961
through May 20 to 171 cases, 111 paralytic.

the Communicable Disease Center. All represented cuta-
neous lesions on exposed areas of the body. Twenty
(87 percent) of these cases occurred among industrial
workers, 16 having contact with proved contaminated goat
hair, 3 with proved contaminated wool, and 1 case in a
stevedore who handled both hides and wool. Two were
agricultural-associated cases: one occurred in a veterina-
rian who autopsied animals that died of anthrax. The
second agricultural-associated case had contact with
sheep prior to developing his lesion. The remaining case
occurred in a refrigerator repairman who had no known
contact with Bacillus anihracis infected materials.
Fifteen of the industrial cases occurred at one mill
in South Carolina which, during the past year, began to
process imported raw goat hair, work formerly done in its
Philadelphia and North Carolina mills, among whose
employees cases of cutaneous anthrax had been seen.
Two cases were reported from Massachusetts, and single
cases were reported from New Hampshire, New Jersey,
Pennsylvania, New York, Arkansas and Illinois.
The 23 cases reported in 1960 represents an increase
from the 15 cases reported in 1959 and 17 cases reported
in 1958. During the past 45 years, however, the annual
number of cases reported has been gradually decreasing
as shown in the graph above.



Salmonellosis Washington

On April 10, 1961, a three year old female resident


of Spokane, Washington became ill with symptoms of ab-
dominal cramping, fever and severe bloody diarrhea. Stool
culture yielded a group B Sa.monella which later proved
to be Salmonella typhi iirurrm. Epidemiologic investiga-
tion revealed that four of six remaining members of the
family of. the index case experienced similar illnesses,
although less severe, all with onset on April 15. In addi-
tion, 3 similar cases were reported in a family of five
persons living temporarily in the same household, both
with onsets on April 17th. Five other families living in or
near Spokane, with whom the index case had contact since
April 1 were investigated and in one of these families 2
additional cases were recorded. In every case, illness
occurred between one and seven days after contact with
the 3 year old index case. On April 19 and 20, stool
specimens were obtained from 30 of 38 persons from the
seven families investigated. Of the ten persons who had
experienced illness, eight yielded S. i)phrmurtum. The
same organism was also isolated from one person in each
of two contact families in which no clinical illness was
reported. Although the source of infection in the three
year old index case remains undetermined, it appears
possible that this child may have infected twelve persons
representing five families and caused clinical salmonello-
sis in ten of the twelve. Transmission was likely through
intimate contact or food contamination, although no single
meal was common to all involved persons.

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 ende' the preceding Saturday.
Total figures for the United States and the Pacific Divi-
sion include data for the Stares 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
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 yellow fever) this is noted
below table 1.
