  • Description:
    "Sporadic cases of influenza-like illness continue to be reported among civilian groups. Great difficulty has been encountered in gaining some quantitative measure of these cases. School absentee reports are currently not available because of the summer school recess. Furthermore, states that maintained influenza ‘listening posts’ in large industrial concerns are presently not in operation because of the season. It is hoped that methods for estimating community influenza morbidity in various areas will soon be in operation. Further outbreaks of influenza-like illness have occurred among migrant workers from Mexico in Michigan and Indiana. Asian strain has been confirmed in the Michigan outbreak. Influenza has also appeared in two crowded labor camps in New York State. Such episodes have previously been reported from California labor camps. An explosive outbreak of influenza has caused 10 of the 22 schools in a Louisiana Parish to be closed. Intensive investigation of the situation is presently in progress. Impressions of increased respiratory illness have been noted from Florida, Texas, Roanoke, Virginia and New Orleans, Louisiana. Hospital personnel in a hospital located in the last named city seem to have been particularly affected. Isolations of Asian stain have now been reported from several South American countries including Chile and Columbia. Asian strain isolated in Miami, Florida has been obtained from Chilean airline crews. At present no extensive influenza outbreaks are in progress. Nevertheless, reports of sporadic cases are increasing. This appears to be a real increase for this season and not merely increased attention to febrile respiratory disease." - p. 2
