  • Description:
    "A major decline in deaths due to pneumonia and influenza occurred during the week ending March 15. Deaths for all divisions totaled 640 compared to 814 for the previous week. This twenty-one percent decrease exceeds the decrease of the last week of November 1957 which marked the end of the fall Asian strain influenza epidemic. Every geographic division reported a decrease, and five of the nine regions are now at or near seasonal expectancy. A modification of the procedure used by the CDC Virus and Rickettsia Section for the removal of non-specific inhibitor from sera under study for Asian strain influenza is described in this report. Some laboratory observations concerning the Asian set are also included in Section IV. Influenza Surveillance Report No 37 which included a review of data collected by the industrial absentee reporting system, also presented the last of the absentee reports. No further systematic industrial data will be published here. We wish to thank all of those concerned with the collection of these data, and those who provided us with this very useful information for publication in the Influenza Surveillance Reports." - p. 2
