    • Description:
      "During -the week ending November 23 mortality from influenza and pneumonia continued its nationwide decline from the peak in the first week of November, The New England, Paddle Atlantic, East North Central, West North Central, and South Atlantic &visions continued to decline and the Pacific division drooped sharply from a peak last week. The East South Central, West South Central, and Mountain areas experienced very slight increases over the previous week. The influenza map and table will not be reproduced this week. Reports that have come to this office since last week's map appeared, however, suggest that more than 50% of the counties of the United States have now been involved. It is anticipated that the nap will appear in the next CDC Influenza Surveillance Report. National Health Survey data showed a small increase in the average number of persons in bed each day for the week ending November 2, while the number of new cases involving one or more days of bed disability declined sharply from the previous week. Industrial absentee data for the week ending November 16 revealed that seven of the thirty-six reporting cities had returned t o normal absentee rates. Miami, however, noted its first increase above normal during this same week. All reporting cities have now experienced increases in industrial absenteeism. All but three of the twenty-nine cities still experiencing increased absenteeism reported declines or stable rates during the most recent reporting week. A total of 48,877,624 ml. of Asian strain influenza vaccine has been released through November 20. This includes 4,307,330 ml. released since November 13. All of the vaccine released l a s t week was the 400 cca monovalent type. There have been many inquiries concerning the relationship between the complement fixation and hemagglutination inhibition tests in the diagnosis of Asian strain influenza. A brief discussion of these matters is presented in the final section of this report." - p. [2]
