    • Description:
      "During the past week there has been a considerable decrease in the number of new influenza outbreaks reported. The influenza map is omitted because very few changes have occurred since last week. Industrial and excess mortality data, as well as the National Health Survey, confirm the impression of a waning epidemic. Attention is directed now to the possibility of a recurrent epidemic of greater severity. Although small outbreaks will probably continue do occur in populations not previously affected, there is no evidence that the disease is becoming more severe. Excess influenza and pneumonia mortality for the nation did not fall appreciably during the past week. All regions in the eastern half of the United States continued to decline, but the Pacific and Mountain areas rose enough to maintain the national level. The National Health Survey showed a steep decrease in new cases during the week ending Novembers 16. A total of 53,770,059 ml of Asian influenza vaccine has been released through December 4. This includes 2,116,470 released since last week. A report from Japan discusses the "second wave" in that country. Apparently the "second wave" is principally involving persons who were not previously attacked." - p. [2]
