    • Alternative Title:
      Influenza : Far Eastern strain, 1957 : Confirmed cases, Confirmed and suspect outbreaks [map, July 27, 1957]
    • Description:
      "Further small outbreaks among Boy Scouts returned from the Jamboree. These have been reported from Texas and two areas in Alabama. At least one additional outbreak has been reported from a military facility in California. Another local outbreak of influenza-like illness has occurred among migrant workers in Sonoma County, California. At present, only small groups among these workers have been involved. Due to some difficulty in performing hemagglutination-inhibition tests with currently available antigen, isolates from several outbreaks have so far been grouped only by complement-fixation tests. Influenza A virus has been identified in some outbreaks listed in Table II. These will not be noted until confirmation of Asian strain virus has been obtained." - p. 2
