  • Details:

    • Description:
      "The incidence of epidemic influenza appears to be quite low by all methods of surveillance. A few outbreaks have been reported in widely separated areas. Influenza and pneumonia mortality was slightly increased over last week, but this is probably related to decreased reporting for the Easter week-end. The trend toward normal has not been significantly interrupted." - p. 2
    • Content Notes:
      April 15, 1958.

      "Routine state reporting of influenza outbreaks (form 4.147B) may be discontinued. The low incidence of influenza makes this information no longer necessary. Information from this reporting system has been invaluable during the epidemic period, and we wish to thank the many people involved in collecting the data. We continue to solicit information about unusual or new occurrences related to influenza. The Influenza Surveillance Report will continue to keep you informed about the disease, but may appear at less frequent intervals in the future." - p. 2
