    • Description:
      "The CDC Influenza Report in no way replaces established sources of epidemiologic information related to influenza. It is mainly concerned with the rapid dissemination of often preliminary data and is not meant for general release. Reports will include those influenza-like illnesses which are reported to CDC. Admittedly, these may not represent all epidemics but the information should provide a measure of the progress of the disease, at the same time providing basic epidemiological, clinical, and laboratory data relating to this new strain of influenza virus. All suspect outbreaks of influenza involving large groups will be enumerated. Sporadic cases will not be listed until laboratory confirmation of influenza infection is obtained. Cumulative tables will accompany each report summarizing: 1. Outbreaks and cases in the United States with laboratory confirmations of infection with the Far East strain of influenza virus; 2. Outbreaks of influenza-like illnesses with specimens under laboratory study; 3. Outbreaks found not to be influenza or epidemics of influenza-like illnesses with no specimens available. Information concerning special laboratory techniques and diagnostic reagents will also be included as pertinent." - p. [1]
