    • Description:
      Special note: Information contained in this report is derived from State Health Departments, Epidemic Intelligence Service Officers, the National Office of Vital Statistics, and other pertinent sources. Much of it is preliminary and is intended pri- marily for the use of those with respon- sibility for hepatitis control activities. Anyone desiring to quote parts of this report is urged to consult the originl investigator for confirmation and interpretation. The national incidence of hepatitis has continted during the second quarter 1960 at a level far above any year since 1955. All regions reflect this increase with predominance present in most western states, Alabama, Delaware, Kentucky, Tennessee, and West Virginia. Although by the end of June we are approaching the seasonal hepatitis low, monthly morbidity is double last year's total for the same month. Current data strongly suggest that the 1960-61 hepatitis season will be a major one.
