State of Washington. The Province of Saskatchewan in
Canada has also confirmed Influenza B.
Outbreaks of confirmed Influenza B have, in general,
affected primarily school-age populations. Industrial
absenteeism has not been notably elevated.
Reported influenza and pneumonia deaths do not
show a significant increase above expected levels at
this time.
No isolations of Type A influenza virus (Asian or

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report


RESPIRATORY DISEASE IN U S.
From No. 1961 Jon. 3, 1962 by County


Oregon Multiple outbreaks of up-per respiratory
and gastroenteric disease have been present in western
Oregon since November. Attack rates have been highest
among the school-age population. Ten representative
cases have had serologic titer rises to Influenza B.
Washington State Schools in Spokane, in the east-
ern part of the State, report considerable absenteeism due
to respiratory disease. Laboratory investigation of cases
in the several previously reported western counties is
pending.
Colorado The outbreak of respiratory disease in
southwest Colorado is subsiding. South central Colorado
continues to report influenza-like illness every week.
The majority of patients are school-age children. Several
of these cases have been confirmed as Type B influenza.
Missouri Epidemics of acute respiratory disease
have been recorded in central and eastern Missouri. Iso-
lates of Type B influenza have been obtained from Wash-
ington (Potosi) and Cole (Jefferson City) Counties.
Illinois Influenza B has been isolated from two
patients in southwestern Illinois, following a sharp out-
break of acute respiratory illness in several towns in
that area. Unusual amounts of acute respiratory infec-
tions have not been reported elsewhere in the State.


Canada Except for the widespread epidemic in
Saskatchewan and a small outbreak reported in British
Columbia, Canada has remained relatively free of in-
fluenza like illness to date.
British Columbia School absenteeism up to 30
percent has been reported from Greenwood, a small com-
munity in British Columbia bordering an involved county
in the State of Washington. An acute influenza-like ill-
ness began about November 15. Symptoms were runny
nose, headache, listlessness, sore throat, occasional
fever, and mild digestive upset. Recovery occurred with-
in 5-10 days, but 60 percent of the patients had a relapse,
usually with runny eyes and earaches, occasionally with
mastoiditis and pneumonia.
(Information for this summary was obtained from: Dr.

Health; Dr. Grant Skinner, Oregon State Board of Health;

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 hospitalcenters servingthe 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


Poliomyelitis A total of 1327 cases of poliomye-
litis was reported provisionally during 1961. Of the 1327
cases, 864 (65 percent) were paralytic, 314 nonparalytic
and 149 unspecified as to paralytic status. The 1327
cases in 1961 represent the lowest incidence of poliomye-
litis since reporting began in 1912. In addition, the 864
paralytic cases in 1960 is the lowest number recorded
since the reporting of paralytic poliomyelitis became a
common practice in 1951.
Shown below are the provisional national figures com-
pared with the annual totals of the previous five years:


Hepatitis A total of 72,559 cases of hepatitis was
reported for the entire year of 1961. This number exceeds
the previous high year of 1954 when 50,093 cases of
hepatitis were reported. The 1,157 cases reported for the
52nd week of 1961 represent approximately 200 more
cases than reported for the same period of 1960.


Addendum: Respiratory Disease Utah
An outbreak of influenza-like disease has been
reported from Cedar City and Parowan in Iron County,
Utah. School absenteeism in Parowan just prior to the
Christmas holidays ran as high as 50%. In some house-
holds all members of the family were ill. The outbreak
appears to be subsiding.
Iron County is in southwest Utah and not far from
counties in Arizona where Influenza B has been identified.
(Reported by Dr. A. A. Jenkins, Acting Director, Com-
munity Health Services, State of Utah on January 4, 1962.)

where the diagnosis of smallpox was confirmed shortly
thereafter. The second case, a 36-year-old Pakistani,
arrived in the Birmingham area from Pakistan on December
20. The case was reported on January 1. No secondary
cases have been reported from either the London or Birm-
ingham area.
