Description:Summary -- II. Epidemic reports -- III. Items of note: Surveillance method, Rapid laboratory diagnoses -- IV. Weekly pneumonia and influenza deaths.
"The focus of influenza activity appears to be shifting from the West Coast to the Central and Southeastern United States. Outbreaks of respiratory disease previously reported in the three Pacific States are declining. Colorado reports extension of the outbreaks to the eastern part of the State, but the epidemics in the southwest part of the State are waning. Missouri notes several additional communities which have been involved, all of them quite close to previously existing epidemic areas. Three States--Iowa, Tennessee, and Georgia-- and two foreign capitals--Warsaw, Poland, and Madrid, Span-- report influenza-like illness for the first time this season. No laboratory confirmation is yet available from these areas. The total number of reported influenza and pneumonia deaths in 108 cities for the week ending January 6, increased from 522 to 613, exceeding the epidemic threshold for the first time this season. It is too early to state whether this is due to outbreaks of influenza or to a delay in reporting, occasioned by the holidays." - summary
