The graph shows reported hepatitis cases in the United States by 4-week periods since
1952. The recent period ending February 25 continues the steep ascent noted earlier
(Volume 10, Number 5). The 1961 cumulative total for the 10-week period ending March
11 is 17,472 cases which is more than double the 7,332 cases reported during the com-
parable period one year ago and considerably above the 12,842 cases in 1954, our last


national hepatitis peak. This week 1,930

with myalgia, dizziness, cough, sore throat, conjuncti-
vitis, and general malaise lasting 4 to 5 days. There has
been no response to antibiotics. Approximately 50 of the
1600 persons on the base have been afflicted with the
illness. During February there have been arrivals at the
base from the Far East including Japan, although none
have been ill since arrival. Cultures have been taken for
virological study.

Hepatitis in an Institution Oregon

An outbreak of infectious hepatitis occurred during
January in a home for mentally retarded patients in Oregon.
A total of 47 cases, primarily involving teenagers, have
been reported. This is the second outbreak in this home
in the past six years.
The first case, who was apparently responsible for
the explosive outbreak, became ill on December 14 with
low grade fever, vomiting, and malaise. He did not become


cases were reported, a slight decline from


jaundiced. He had been playing with the children of a
migrant worker prior to entering the Home on November 7
for the first time. On January 4, 1961 two persons devel-
oped hepatitis in cottage A where the first case lived,
followed by 9 on the seventh and 9 again on the eleventh.
in nearby cottage B, 3 cases became sick on January 8.
A total of 32 cases have now occurred over a short
period of time in cottage A, 9 in cottage B, and 4 addi-
tional cases occurred in persons living elsewhere but
working in cottage A. Only 1 case at the home has oc-
curred in a person not living or working in cottage A
or B.
An investigation to find the cause of this outbreak
showed that the water supply was probably at fault. During
periods of low water pressure temporary cross connection
between the water and sewage streams occurred.
To control spread of the outbreak, the two cottages
were put under isolation and educational and recreational
activities at the home were curtailed. Feeding was done
in the cottages rather than centrally. All patient helpers

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.

were screened and those working in A and B were not al-
lowed back to their former cottages. Gamma globulin was
used to protect exposed employees and patients.
During the Christmas vacation many of the hepatitis
patients had visited their homes. To date, three counties
have reported 8 people in 4 families with infectious
hepatitis, probably secondary to these Christmas visitors.

demiological Sections, Oregon State Board of Health.)

Staphylococcal Food Poisoning Washington
On January 1, 1961, two adults and four children
became ill 4 to 6 hours after an evening meal which was
consumed at 6:00 p.m. by children and grandchildren at
the home of grandparents. The first case became ill at
10:00 p.m. Ages of the victims are 54, 20, 11, 8, 5, and
212 years. Symptoms consisted of nausea, vomiting, chills
and abdominal pain. A seventh person had nausea but
none of the other symptoms. All of the cases recovered
within 24 hours. The foods eaten consisted of turkey,
cranberry salad, cocktails, and apple pie with ice cream.
The turkey came from a local market and had been cooked
and left out of the refrigerator 5 to 6 hours before cold
turkey sandwiches were made. The ice cream was home-
made and contained uncooked, raw milk and cream. The
freezer was old with a somewhat rusty inside container.
Samples of turkey, cranberry salad, and ice cream were
examined and abundant coagulase positive Staphylococ-
cus aureus were grown from the ice cream. The turkey
and cranberry salad were negative for pathogens.

Disease Section, Washington State Department of Health.)

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
States 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.
