PROVISIONAL INFORMATION ON SELECTED NOTIFIABLE DISEASES IN THE UNITED STATES AND ON
DEATHS IN SELECTED CITIES FOR WEEK ENDED MAY 5. 1962


POLIOMYELITIS A total of ten cases, seven paralytic,
was reported during the week ending May 5. Five of the
seven paralytic cases were reported by Texas. Two of
them, both unvaccinated pre-school age children, are from
Wehb County (Laredo). This brings the Webb County total
to five paralytic cases, the highest reported 1962 county
total in the United States. Involved are inadequately
vaccinated pre-school age children as shown below. All
onsets have occurred in the past eight weeks. Virologic
study is under way.

HEPATITIS -The number of hepatitis cases reported
for the week ending May 5 was 1,118, a drop from the
previous week's total of 1,326. With the exception of the
slight rise in cases for the week ending April 28, there


has been a steady decline in the number of hepatitis
cases since the peak week ending February 3. For that
week 1,698 cases were reported.


RABIES IN THE UNITED STATES 1961


During 1961, a total of three human rabies deaths
was reported in the United States. Two of the deaths oc-
curred in Kentucky from fox bites; the third case occurred
in a man in California who had been bitten by a dog. All
three of the patients had received 14-day courses of
rabies immunization, starting one day, 7 days, and 2'i.
weeks, respectively, after the bite. Details on the three
cases are shown below.
The total number of diagnosed rabies cases in
animals reported to the Rabies Surveillance Unit remained


about the same in 1961 as it had been in 1960. As shown
on p. 144, the number of cases of rabies among dogs and
foxes decreased while cases among skunks and bats
sharply increased. The increase in skunk rabies is due
to a notable rise in the number of cases reported in three
widely separated skunk rabies foci centered in California,
Texas, and Iowa. Twenty-eight States reported bat rabies
in 1961. A number of these States seldom record rabies
in any other species. The States reporting the largest
number of animal cases in 1961 were: Texas (658);

1961 PARALYTIC POLIOMYELITIS, AGE-SPECIFIC ATTACK RATES


In 1961, the attack rates for paralytic poliomyelitis
continued to be highest among the pre-school age group.
Of the 829 paralytic cases reported to the Poliomyelitis
Surveillance Unit (See MMWR, Vol. 11, No. 15), 319 were
infants and pre-school children. Age-specific attack rates
shown in the following table clearly indicate this peak
incidence. Rates diminish progressively with age until
the young adult group, and then a secondary rise is evi-
dent in the 25-29 year age group. Thus in 1961 "babies
and breadwinners" again suffered the highest disease
incidence.

SUMMARY OF PNEUMONIA AND INFLUENZA DEATHS


The average weekly excess number of pneumonia-
influenza deaths in the 108 U.S. cities during the four-
week period ending May 5, declined to normal ranges,
bringing to a close the 1961-1962 influenza season.
Deaths exceeded normal levels for 14 weeks, commencing
with the first week in 1962. The total number of excess
pneumonia-influenza deaths in the 108 cities during the
recent influenza B epidemic was 1,230, an excess of 17
percent. In the 1960 A2 influenza epidemic the duration


was also 14 weeks but excess pneumonia-influenza
deaths totalled 4,184, an excess of 63 percent.

EPIDEMIOLOGICAL REPORT
Food Poisoning Illinois
On March 25, five of six family members became
sick from two to five hours after having eaten a breakfast z
of scrambled eggs and coconut cream pie. All sick in- ? 3M
dividuals had severe cramps, nausea, vomiting, and diar- io n o
rhea and were hospitalized for two days. The father, who ;' I i M
had not eaten the pie, did not become sick. Though them a O
pie was not available for culturing, it seems likely that 3. ~
it had been contaminated by staphylococci. 0 ,m
The pie had been purchased at an outlet store for 5 ro -'
day-old bakery goods. m
