Depicted is the weekly annual incidence of reported hepatitis cases for the past two years and
the previous high year of 1954. A pronounced seasonal decline in cases is evident this year.
The number of reported cases has fallen from a high of 2,091 cases for the week ending March 4
to 999 cases for the current week ending July 1.


two in late June. Three are in Negro and two in white
children. An immunization campaign is being planned.
An additional four cases, one paralytic, were re-
ported this week from the Atlanta metropolitan area. This
brings the total for the year to 13 of which 6 are paralytic.


EPIDEMIOLOGICAL REPORTS

Coxsockie B-2 Epidemic Adams County, Washington
An epidemic of a febrile illness, characterized by
excruciating headache, dizziness and severe myalgia is
reported from an area in and around Lind, Adams County,
Washington. A number of cases with pleurodynia, several
with orchitis and one with a probable myocarditis have
been observed. No cases of aseptic meningitis have yet
been uncovered.
The epidemic commenced in late May and has con-
tinued to date with additional cases being noted at in-
creasing distances from the focus at Lind.
An age distribution of 67 cases studied shows the
disease to be predominantly concentrated among children
and adolescents.

Cases among adults have been almost exclusively among

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


Rabies Death Kentucky
The third human death this year due to rabies was
reported this week by Kentucky.
The patient, a 74-year-old resident of Powell County,
died on June 26. Approximately five weeks previously he
had investigated a commotion in his chicken house and
had found a fox under the shed. On attempting to chase
the fox away, he was bitten on his left thumb. The fox
was killed and discarded. The man refused rabies vacci-
nation initially, but after two calves had died within the
following two weeks of apparent rabies, he assented to
vaccination. He received 14 doses of duck embryo vac-
cine, the last, three days before onset of symptoms.
On June 22, he experienced tingling on his left side,
followed subsequently by progressive paralysis, photo-
phobia, hydrophobia and death. Post mortem examination
revealed Negri bodies in brain material.
(Reported by Dr. Joe Skaggs, Public Health Veterinarian,
Kentucky State Department of Health.)

Hepatitis Possible Common Source Outbreak, Minnesota

Between June 2 and June 20, twenty cases of hepati-
tis occurred among 600 employees of two companies
housed in one of the newer office buildings in downtown
St. Paul. The cases were scattered throughout the various
departments and various floors of the building. All denied
known exposure to previous cases; none had consumed
raw oysters or clams; inoculations or the receipt of blood
products was denied; the water supply for the building
was found to be satisfactory. Seventeen of the 20 ate
lunch more or less regularly at the cafeteria; two addi-
tional patients carried their lunch and drank coffee at the
cafeteria. Notably, preceding this outbreak, one case of
hepatitis had occurred (onset, May 12) in an employee of
the food handling service operating the cafeteria in the
building. This person had worked until the day of onset
making sandwiches and salads and waiting on patrons.
Gamma globulin prophylaxis was offered to all em-
ployees on June 21.
(Reported by Dr. D. S. Fleming, Director, Division of
Disease Prevention and Control, Minnesota Department
of Health.)

sion include data for the States of Alaska and Hawaii.

States reporting these diseases. When diseases of rare
occurrence are reported b\, a State (cholera, dengue,
