  • Description:
    I. Summary -- II. Epidemic reports -- III. Laboratory report -- IV. Weekly pneumonia and influenza deaths

    "Outbreaks of acute febrile respiratory disease, many shown to be due to influenza B, currently span the United States in an arc, extending from the West Coast to Miami, Florida. Two States along this arc report outbreaks of influenza-like disease for the first time. They are Kansas and Kentucky. States reporting additional outbreaks this week include Arizona, Colorado. Iowa, Missouri, Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida. A few small outbreaks are reported from contiguous of New York and Massachusetts. They began immediately after the Christmas holidays and involve school age children predominantly. Deaths from pneumonia and influenza in 108 United States cities show a moderate excess above suspected levels for the second consecutive week. Deaths attributed to respiratory disease in England showed an additional marked increase for the week ending January 6. Isolation of type B influenza by inoculation of embryonated eggs has, in many instances, proved less successful than isolation through the inoculation of primary monkey tissue culture or primary human fetal kidney tissue culture. This problem is discussed under Section III, Laboratory Reports." - p. 1
