INFLUENZA
Group A influenza infections have been demonstrated
by serological conversions in 4 States during the past few
weeks. In addition to confirmations in New Jersey, Con-
necticut, Massachusetts, and Penns l\ ania.(some reported
in MMWtR, Vol. 14, No. 3), focal outbreak of influenza in
Missouri has presumptively been ascribed to Type A virus
by fluorescent antibody study of nasal secretions from
typical cases. An outbreak of influenza-like disease has
been reported from northern Maine but laboratory tests are

as yet incomplete and the cliological agent not identified.
The only virus isolate yet typed is an influenza A2 strain
recovered in Allegphtn County, Pennsylvania.
The outbreaks occurring in these States continue to
be sporadic and scattered. In gcnoral, children principally
appear to be affected at times resulting in marked school

absenteeism. Extension of the illness into adult and older
age populations is not being generally observed although
in some areas cases are being identified among all age
groups.
Attention is called to the charted influenza and pneu-
monia mortality data reported to CDC from 122 United
States cities (page 35). In the United States as a whole,
influenza and pneumonia deaths are below the epidemic
threshold. In the Middle Atlantic Division, irregular ex-
cursions above the "epidemic threshold" have been evi-
dent in past weeks. Several cities within the Eastern
Divisions have reported fluctuations in numbers of deaths,
at times well above seasonal expectations. Although some
of the increases may reflect already identified influenza
activity in the area, others cannot yet be explained.


EPIDEMIOLOGIC REPORTS
INFLUENZA State Reports
New Jersey
Since early January 1965, health workers, physicians
and other paramedical personnel have been aware of an
increased incidence of acute febrile respiratory disease
throughout the State. Influenza activity was first confirmed
ata State school forboys, 9 to 16 years of age, near James-
burg in Middlesex County. On January 1, 1965, older boys
returning from vacations in the Newark, New Brunswick,
and Paterson areas, developed acute febrile respiratory
illnesses. During the following week, the daily number of
new cases reached a peak. The over-all attack rate in the
ensuing epidemic was 22 percent among the 700 inmates
and 5 percent among school employees. The illness was
characterized as an acute systemic febrile respiratory
disease with temperatures up to 1040 F. Serologic con-
firmation of group A influenza was performed by the State
Laboratory; virus isolation attempts are under way.
Subsequent outbreaks of clinically similar illness
were noted in 3 institutions in the Middlesex-Somerset
County areas: a psychiatric hospital, a chronic disease
hospital, and a State university. Attack rates within these
institutions have been uniformly low (10 percent); no
laboratory confirmations have been made to date.
From a survey of physicians, it would appear that in-
creased respiratory illness is occurring in scattered areas
throughout the State. There has been no widespread school
or industrial absenteeism to support this sureyv to date.
(Reported by William J. Dougherty, M.D., Director, Divi-
sion of Preventable Disease Control, Martin Goldfirld,
M.d)., Director of Laboratories, New Jersey State Depart-
ment of Health, and an EIS officer assisting in the investi-
yation).


Missouri

A consolidated school in Princeton. Missouri, with
about 700 students experienced a sudden increase in its
daily absentee rate to more than 25 percent early in the
week of January 24. Because of continuing high absen-
teeism, the school was closed on January 27. Clinically
the accountable illness was characterized as being
influenza-like but of only moderate severity.
,Epidemiological and laboratory studies are under wa\
in the State Health Department and the CDC Field Station,
Kansas City, Kansas. Employing fluorescein labeled A2
influenza antiserum, presumptive diagnosis were made in
four of seven school children whose nasal epithelial cells
demonstrated specific fluorescent staining. Additional
confirmatory tests are pending.
Retrospectively, it appears likely that a similar
illness was present in towns east of Princeton earlier
in January and was responsible for the brief closing of
schools in one of them.
(Reported by Dr. E.A. Belden, Communicable Disease
Consultant, Missouri Department of Public Health and
Welfare. and the CDC Kansas City Field Station).


Maine

In northern Aroostook Counts, near the Canadian
border, outbreaks of febrile respirator\ disease were
observed beginning in early to middle Januar Affecting
only moderate numbers of individuals, the illness appears
tohave spread in a diffuse pattern through parts of central
Maine in more recent weeks. Augurta is noted, however,
to be the only urban area in the State %where there are
evidences of modest increases in absenteeism in scattered
schools and in ph.iicians' descriptions of the heightened
occurrence of re-piratory diseases. The syndrome has
been observed primarily in younger age groups and has
not made an impact on baseline industrial absenteeism.
Laboratory processing of specimens i presently under
way at CDC.
(Reported by Dr. Dean H. Fisher. Commissioner, I aint
Department of Health and Welfare J.


Pennsylvania

Influenza virus Type A2 has been recovered h\ the
Allegheny County Laboratory from a case involved in an
outbreak recently recognized in the Counts. Some increa-e
in school absenteeism is now being recognized in
Pitt.-burgh.

(Reported by Dr. Edwin Brown, Epidemiioloqi.t. an EIS
Officer, and Mr. Joseph Sarandria, Laboratory Director,
Allegheny County Department of Health).

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report

EPIDEMIOLOGIC REPORTS
INFLUENZA International


Outbreaks of influenza in Russia and East Germany
have recently been observed. The following information is
from a summary prepared in late January by the World
Health Organization:
The epidemic of influenza in Leningrad began about
January 1, 1965, peaked on January 18th, and declined
thereafter. Several thousand people were reportedly
involved, not as many as in the influenza epidemic occur-
ing there three years ago. The illness is described as
being generally mild, affecting predominately children.
During recent days the epidemic has been reported in
cities in the north and east of Russia and from Tallinn,
Riga, and Moscow. A2 viruses have been isolated in
Leningrad and Moscow. Tests to determine the antigenic
characteristics of these viruses have not been completed.
Four A2 viruses have been isolated from scattered
outbreaks in the Baltic Sea area of East Germany.
There are no outbreaks of influenza reported presently
from other countries in Europe.

Officer, Virus Unit, World Health Organization, Geneva).
