    • Description:
      "In the three-week interval since the publication of the last CDC Influenza Surveillance Report, No. 58 January 16, 1961, no outbreaks of influenza or unusual concentrations of cases of influenza-like disease have been reported to this unit. There has been no evidence of influenza activity in the continental United States thus far during the present season. Analysis of current deaths due to influenza and pneumonia received from 108 cities in the United States reveals that the number of deaths through the week ending February 4, 1961, are within the expected limits of normal for the season. Reports received during the past three weeks indicate that the epidemic of influenza in Great Britain, confirmed as due to type A2 influenza virus, is continuing to spread. The epidemic of influenza reported from Japan, centering around metropolitan Tokyo, is likewise continuing, and has been confirmed as due to influenza type B. An epidemic characteristic of influenza, but not yet laboratory confirmed, has been reported from Samoa." - p. 2
