    • Description:
      "Scattered, limited outbreaks of influenza-like disease have continued to be reported in the one-week interval since the publication of CDC Influenza Surveillance Report No. 53, January 29, 1960. Many of the outbreaks reported this week are in states in the southeastern United States, and the number of outbreaks reported from other areas is declining. Many of the previously re-ported outbreak's, particularly in the Northeast and Midwest, are subsiding, although sporadic cases continue to occur in those areas. Clinical influenza remains widespread in Texas, but appears to be subsiding gradually in Southern California. An increased incidence of febrile respiratory disease or local outbreaks of clinical influenza have been reported in a total of 35 states including the District of Columbia. Type A2 influenza virus has been isolated in a total of 22 states, including the District of Columbia. Mortality due to influenza and pneumonia, as reported from 108 cities for the week ending January 30th, continued to rise, and for the fourth successive week exceeded the "epidemic threshold". This increase is noted in several regions, but, as was true last week is particularly marked in the Pacific region. Among 8 California cities, the increase is most marked in Los Angeles." - p. 2
