EPIDEMIOLOGICAL NOTES


INFLUENZA
With the spread of Type A influenza in eastern U.S.
from early January 1965, 22 States have now confirmed
its presence serologically, and 10 of them have recovered
A2 strain viruses as shown in the table (page 82). In a
single instance,a T pe B virus has been recovered from a
localized outbreak in Colorado, a State where serological
evidence of Type A infection has also been reported.
Seven other States describe influenza-like illnesses as
yet not confirmed as influenza by laboratory methods.
The epidemiological patterns in confirmed and sus-
pect influenza outbreaks continue to be variable in some
regions moderately widespread and in others scattered

reported at the Niort Hospice (Deux-Sevres).


Netherlands

obtained in 3 others. Influenza A2 virus has been isolated
from one patient in an outbreak of clinical influenza on a
Swedish ship in Rotterdam. There is no evidence of epi-
demic influenza in the civilian population.


Sweden
(Information on February 26, 1965). Since the be-
ginning of February between 800 and 1000 cases of in-
fluenza-like disease have been observed in Stockholm and
northern Sweden where the incidence appears to be de-
creasing already. Serological evidence of influenza A has
been obtained in 4 cases and a hemagglutinating agent,
preliminary identified as influenza A2 virus, has been
isolated from a patient recently arrived from Finland.
During the last week 2 minor outbreaks of clinical in-
fluenza have been reported from military units in Stock-

is, as yet, no evidence of an epidemic spread of the
disease.
