the current week was 54 cases of which 36 were paralytic.

EPIDEMIOLOGICAL REPORT

Hepatitis Cases by Age United States

The observation of an unusual proportion of hepatitis
cases among adults in New Jersey and the revelation of
an underlying cause, a common source epidemic traceable
to Raritan Bay derived clams, led to the initiation on
April 29, 1961 of the nation-wide reporting of cases
by age under 20 years and 20 years or over (MMWR,
Vol. 10, No. 17). A total of 33 States were able to pro-
vide this age breakdown routinely beginning with the
first week; all but a few Stares now routinely report this
information.
A summary of reports received since April 29 through
the present week appears on page 8. For the country,
as a whole, 40.9% of the cases occurred among those 20
years of age and over. No States except those in the New
England, Middle Atlantic and Pacific districts show a
percentage of cases 20 years and over which exceeds
50%. In only three States does the proportion of cases
among adults exceed 60%. These States are New Jersey,
Connecticut and New York which show figures of 73, 63,
and 62 percent, respectively.
It is pertinent to note that since the week of July 8,
California has reported 982 cases of hepatitis, 368 of
which were in persons under 20 years of age, 588 over
20, and 26 unspecified. Thus, during the past six weeks,
62% of cases from California have also been among
adults.

Three additional suspect cases of more recent onset
are being investigated.
The six paralytic cases from New York are from 6
different counties including one from Madison County.
Not yet reflected in the telegraphic reports are three
additional paralytic cases from the Oneida City vicinity
(Madison County) and a fourth case across the county
line in Oneida County. The onsets of the five cases
range from August 2 to August 8. A previous case oc-
curred in Madison County on June 28.
The three paralytic cases in Georgia are all from
the Atlanta area. All had onsets in late July; none had
either Salk or Sabin vaccine. This brings the reported
total in the Atlanta area to 11 cases, 10 paralytic.


Cholera A bacteriologically confirmed case of
cholera has been reported through WHO from the Portugese
Colony of Macao. Macao is located on the South China
Coast, 35 miles from Hong Kong. This case follows un-
confirmed reports of cholera in epidemic form occurring
since early August in the bordering Chinese mainland
province of Kwangtung.
For all travelers to the Hong Kong area, cholera
immunization is strongly recommended d.

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 1 shows the
Stares 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.
