    • Description:
      "An outline of the paths of travel and dates of appearance of Asian strain influenza in various part of the world is appended to this Report. The extensive outbreaks seen in the Far East are contrasted with the relatively sporadic nature of the illness as seen, so far, in Europe and the United States. Further information about the previously mentioned egg-animal-line of virus used in H-I tests at the Influenza Virus Center is contained here. The periodate treatment of serum to remove nonspecific inhibitor is also described. Sever airmen flying from Chile to Miami, Florida developed an influenza-like illness enroute. Specimens were obtained in Miami. Santiago, where the flight originated, is presently experiencing an outbreak of influenza. A mild outbreak of febrile respiratory disease among Boy Scouts in a Missouri camp is outlined. Further influenza cases among Boy Scouts who attended the Jamboree are reported from Texas, New Mexico, and South Carolina. Asian strain has been isolated from a Texas Boy Scout. Asia strain influenza virus has been isolated in New York State and infection detected serologically in Connecticut among returned Grinnell delegates. Despite 34 cases of influenza among those returned to Pennsylvania from Grinnell, only three secondary cases have been noted incident to them." - p. 2
