CURRENT TRENDS
MALARIA IN THE UNITED STATES, 1965

Through January 15, 1966, a total of 106 case-reports
of malaria diagnosed in the United States during 1965 had
been received by the Parasitic Disease Unit of the Com-
municable Disease Center. The distribution by species
of parasite in 99 instances is shown in Table 1; the age
and sex distribution is listed in Table 2.
All cases were imported with the exception of two
civilian cases, one crpticr and one introduced, both of
which were caused by Plasmodium vivax. Civilians ac-
counted for 55 cases, of which 10 were Peace Corps
workers and 2 were merchant seamen. Of the 51 cases
occurring in military personnel, 36 cases originated in

for 24 of the 36 cases (67 percent) including 4 cases in
individuals who had been discharged from the service be-
fore the malaria was diagnosed.
The increase in the proportion of military personnel
among the cases reported from quarter to quarter in
1965 is shown in Table 3; this increasing percentage in

military personnel is the result of returning servicemen
who acquired malaria in South Viet Nam.

The four military servicemen who were recently dis-
charged after serving in Viet Nam developed falciparum
malaria after they had returned to the United States during
the month of December. Three of these patients main-
tained that chloroquine-primaquine prophylaxis was taken
regularly; information is lacking from the fourth case.
Two of these four cases terminated fatally.

INTERNATIONAL NOTES
INFLUENZA Great Britain


Outbreaks of a febrile respiratory illness in children
associated with up to 50 percent school absenteeism have
been recognized since mid-January in parts of Great
Britain. First reported in Scotland and northern England,
the illness has been uniformly mild and has subsequently
appeared in scattered areas farther to the south, including
London. There has been little evidence of a substantial
amount of comparable illness in the adult population and
no notable increase in demand for hospital services has
been observed.
Influenza and influenza pneumonia mortality in
England and Wales during the first 4 weeks of 1966 has


shown a progressive increase to a total of 140 deaths.
This is in contrast to a total of 56 deaths registered
during the same 4-week period of 1965 when there was no
evidence of influenza occurring in epidemic form.
Strains of type B influenza virus have been isolated
from children involved in the outbreaks presently occurring
in various parts of Britain. From preliminary studies
these new strains appear similar to those type B strains
isolated in England during 1964 and 1965. A few strains
of type A2 influenza virus recovered from sporadic cases
of influenza in adults this year have not shown any clear
relationship to the present school-associated outbreaks.

MORTALITY IN 122 UNITED STATES CITIES


TUBERCULOSIS MORBIDITY IN 35 COUNTRIES


Since the introduction of anti-tuberculosis drugs in
the early 1950's and their subsequent widespread use in
the chemotherapy of tuberculosis, there has been a dra-
matic decline in mortality recorded in those countries
from which statistics are available. While account must
be taken of variations from country to country in criteria
for the reporting, registration and certification of tuber-
culosis, the statistics reported to national and inter-
national agencies are the only data available for the
measurement of morbidity trends.
Undoubtedly there has also been a decline in mor-
bidity from tuberculosis in many countries due to chemo-


therapy, to chemoprophylaxis and to the protection by
other means of contacts of known open cases of the
disease. The measurement of morbidity in recent years in
35 countries as represented by "new case" rates is
shown in Table 4. When there is added to these totals
the numbers of persons previously reported with active
or latent tuberculosis who are living longer as a result
of effective h-r,,,.ri,, r i..', tuberculosis manifestly con-
tinues to be a world-wide communicable disease problem
of great economic importance.
