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

Deaths in Selected Cities for Week Ended June 24, 1961


Poliomyelitis Seventeen cases, eighi paralytic were
reported this week by thirteen different States. The total
number of cases, although at a record low level for this
season of the year, represents an increase over that of
the past three weeks.
An additional two non-paralytic cases were reported
this week from the Atlanta area bringing the total for the
year to nine of which four are paralytic. From prompt
laboratory studies, this was identified as a presumptive
Type III outbreak and over 250,000 children under the
age of 15 were fed Type III oral vaccine during the past
week. A concurrent Salk vaccine campaign has also been
in progress.


Three paralytic cases, all with onsets in mid-June,
have now been reported from South-central Louisiana.
Seven cases in all have occurred in Louisiana this year
of which six are paralytic. All are among children under
the age of five years.
Hepatitis The current weekly total of 1,233 cases
represents a decrease of 114 cases from that reported
last week. Decreased numbers of cases are recorded for
all sections of the country except for the east-south-
central district of Kentucky, Alabama, Mississippi, and
Tennessee which show an increase from 166 to 215 cases.
Over three-fourths of these cases are among persons
under 20 years of age.

DIPHTHERIA CASES AND RATES BY STATE
UNITED STATES


ALASKA
ALASKA


Typhoid Fever Six cases are reported by New York
State this week. These cases, plus another not yet re-
ported officially, occurred among a group of school chil-
dren age 7 to 13 years in Westchester County. The dates
of onset for these cases range between June 4 and June
19. All appear to relate to a common exposure at a
school cafeteria.

EPIDEMIOLOGICAL REPORTS
Diphtheria in the United States 1960
During 1960, information concerning 873 clinical
cases and 247 carriers of diphtheria were submitted to
the Surveillance Section of the Communicable Disease
Center. As depicted by the map, the majority of the
cases (81%) were reported from the fifteen States in the
South Atlantic and East and West South Central Districts.
Two major outbreaks, the largest since 1956, occur-
red in 1960 in Scott County, Kentucky (MMWR Vol. 10,
No. 2) where 51 cases with one death were recorded, and
in Plainview, Texas (MMWR Vol. 10, No. 1 & Vol. 9,
No. 51) which experienced 56 cases and one death. Cases
in both outbreaks occurred predominantly among unim-
munized children.


As in previous years, diphtheria cases in the United
States concentrated among children: 78% of the cases
were among those under 15, the greatest number occurring
among those 3 to 6 years of age.
Although there were a somewhat greater number of
cases among white persons (495) than among non-white
(366), attack rates among non-white persons were approxi-
mately six times greater, and cases in this latter group
tended to concentrate more among younger children.
The immunization status of the cases bore a definite
relationship both the the occurrence of disease and it se-
verity. Of the 873 cases reported, both the immunization
status and severity of disease were recorded for 625.

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report



NUMBER OF DEATHS IN SELECTED CITIES


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


Seventy-three percent of the cases occurred among
unvaccinated persons and 53 of the 57 deaths. Among
those fully vaccinated (i.e. a primary series within four
years or a primary series at any time with a booster with-
in four years) there were no deaths and 42 of the 61 cases
in this group were classed as mild. The only recorded
death among persons who had received a primary series
at any time occurred in a 35-year-old North Dakota woman,
a diabetic, who was reported to have received a primary
series at age 9.

Botulism Type E Washington
At 9:00 p.m. on May 24th, twelve persons on the
Hoh Indian Reservation consumed a meal consisting of
freshly prepared pork chop suey, berry sprouts, fresh raw
salmon, smoked elk meat and salmon eggs. The elk meat
had been smoked fourteen days before and stored without
refrigeration. The uncooked salmon eggs had been placed
in a fruit jar last November, covered with paper and
stored in a shed near the family home.
Nine hours after the meal, a 22-year-old man devel-
oped blurred vision, dizziness, abdominal pain and
vomiting. Within an hour, three other adults developed
similar symptoms. The man died in cardio-respiratory
collapse ten hours after onset; the other victims recov-
ered completely within 72 hours.
The eight remaining persons, all children, consumed
portions of the same food but were not ill. Notably, the
salmon eggs they ate were taken from the top of the jar;
the adults ate the remainder; the fatal case additionally
drank the juice remaining in the jar.
Blood from the fatal case and emesis from a non-
fatal case contained a heat labile toxin not neutralized
by either Type A or B botulism antitoxin. Material from
the salmon egg jar contained botulinus toxin Type E at
a titer of 40 M.L.D. per ml. C. botulinum, Type E, was
grown from the emesis material, the salmon eggs and from
the smoked elk meat.
(Reported by Dr. Ernest A. Ager, Head, Communicable
Disease Control, Washington State Health Department).
