has been confirmed from two additional counties in Ore-

additional counties (Alameda, Amador, Humboldt, and

from cases in the outbreaks in Southwestern Colorado
have now confirmed these due to Influenza B.
Iowa Two outbreaks of respiratory disease were
reported this week from counties in the Northwestern
part of the State. Preliminary results from a telephone
survey carried out in Hazleton where an outbreak com-
menced about January 9 showed age-specific attack
rates similar to those found in Potosi, Missouri (see
MMWR Vol. 10, No. 51) following a confirmed Influenza
B epidemic.

Kansas Kentucky Six counties in Eastern and
Southwestern Kansas report recent outbreaks of febrile
respiratory disease among school age populations.
The first outbreak from Kentucky was reported this
week from Henderson in Northwest Kentucky.
Missouri Outbreaks of acute respiratory disease
previously noted in Central and Eastern Missouri spread
to the Western part of the State during the second week
of January.
A survey of representative school systems in St.
Louis revealed that increased school absenteeism occur-
red over the period November 20 to December 18; in three
of the four school systems, absenteeism was first noted
among high school students; the epidemic peak in each
was reached within a 15 day period. On the clinical side,


nausea and vomiting were notably more common among
grade school than among high school students.
Florida -. Georgia-Tennessee Six Central Florida
counties have reported outbreaks of acute respiratory dis-
ease in recent weeks with school absenteeism ranging
between 20 and 30 percent. Outbreaks are extending
throughout the Greater Miami area.
Five counties in the northwestern part of Georgia
including DeKalb County in the Greater Atlanta area
report increased school absenteeism due to acute respir-
atory disease.
Nine counties, scattered geographically throughout
Tennessee, have now reported febrile respiratory disease
outbreaks. The greatest concentration appears to be in
Maury County in the central part of the State.
Massachusetts -New York Outbreaks of influenza-
like disease commenced on January 8 in the Berkshires
of Western Massachusetts and have involved the com-
munities of Stockbridge, Great Barrington, Sheffield and
Lenox, Massachusetts, and nearby Albany and German-
town, New York. School absenteeism ranging between 10
and 60 percent has been noted. Among Massachusetts
cases, in addition to the traditional symptom pattern,
arthralgia, particularly of the elbows and knees, has
been reported as a significant component.
(Thanks are due to the many State Epidemiologists and
others who have contributed this information)

HEPATITIS- For the first time in two and one-half
years the number of cases of hepatitis in the last report-
ing week was lower than for the same week in the previ-
ous year. A total of 1395 cases was reported for the
second week ending January 13, 1962, while 1457 cases
were reported for the second week ending January 14,
1961.

EPIDEMIOLOGICAL REPORTS

Two Food Poisoning Outbreaks in 1 Hotel California

On October 3, 1961, approximately 45 percent of the
246 individuals attending a company dinner at a prominent
hotel in a large California city developed a disease
characterized predominantly by diarrhea, stomach cramps,
and, to a lesser degree, fever and chills, body aches,
headache, and weakness. The average duration of symp-
toms was 4 days, and the median incubation period was
28 hours. Ten of 49 patients who were cultured had
salmonellae in their stools. No one food item could be
identified as the source of the outbreak, but pot roast,
cheese sauce, and parfait were under suspicion. Stool


specimens were collected from 232 waiters and waitresses
and all 87 kitchen personnel. Results of the culturing of
patients and kitchen personnel are shown below:

Employees found positive for salmonellae were to be
taken off the job and were not to return to work until
stool specimens were negative.

SUMMARY OF PNEUMONIA AND INFLUENZA DEATHS


The chart below shows the average weekly number of
deaths from pneumonia and influenza in 108 United States
Cities by four-week periods. The first bar on the graph in
1962 includes the four weeks ending January 13th. Weekly
data for this period are given in Table 4 on Page 15 of
this week's report.
The weekly average of 563 deaths for the last four
weeks was greater than the expected number. The excess
amounted to 11 percent, somewhat less than the excess of


17 percent during the early period of the 1960 influenza
epidemic, but significantly above normal after allowance
for sampling variation.
A description of the method used in constructing the
"expected number" curve (based on a one term Fourier
series with a linear trend component) is available on
request to the Statistics Section, Epidemiology Branch,
Communicable Disease Center.

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report


Four weeks after the first outbreak, another outbreak
occurred that was traced to the same hotel. Approximately
1400 persons attended a banquet at the hotel on November
4. Of 98 persons interviewed, 28 reported having had a
diarrheal illness shortly after the banquet. Sympromology
in the November outbreak was similar to that found in the
October one, with diarrhea and stomach cramps the pre-
dominant symptoms. However, there was less weakness
and fever in the November outbreak. The average duration
of symptoms was two days with a median incubation
period of 24 hours. No one food item was incriminated in
the outbreak. Stool specimens from 25 patients were
negative.
(Reported by Mr. Carroll Carson, Epidemiology Assistant,
Los Angeles County Health Department, and Dr. John
Gardner, Chief, Division of Preventive Medical Services,
Long Beach City Health Department.)


International Notes Quarantine Measures

Smallpox Europe
Six new cases of smallpox have been officially re-
ported from Bradford, England. Unofficial reports indicate
the cases resulted from contact with a Pakistani girl who
arrived in England on December 16 from Pakistan; these
cases apparently are not related to the earlier two cases
in England also imported from Pakistan.
A smallpox suspect who was a contact of the
Schaffhausen, Switzerland, smallpox case is in isolation
in Bruchsal, Germany. Three smallpox suspects, contacts
of the Dusseldorf, Germany, cases, are under observation
in Dusseldorf.
