Cumulative weekly total number of deaths in 122 United States cities for year 1968 (through 52nd week ended December 28, 1968)

    The most dramatic epidemiological event of 1968 was the pandemic of Hong Kong influenza. In the United States the infection was introduced from the Pacific during September. Scattered outbreaks and sporadic cases were identified with increasing frequency thereafter. Mortality for pneumonia-influenza rose above the epidemic threshold during the week ending December 7, 1968. A sharp nationwide epidemic ensued. Mortality peaked during the second week of January 1969. The total excess mortality during the epidemic from all causes in 122 cities was 19,700 deaths. This Hong Kong influenza epidemic was the most severe since the previous pandemic of Asian influenza in 1957-58 when excess mortality in the same cities was 26,900 deaths.
