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

    "Outbreaks of acute febrile respiratory disease continue to span the United States in an arc from Southern California to Florida. Many new outbreaks have been reported, falling along the arc in the Midwest and in the Southeast. Numerous additional counties were involved in Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, and Tennessee. States reporting for the first time this week include Alabama, Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Texas, bringing the total number of States reporting outbreaks to 23. Washington confirms Influenza B in several additional counties; New Mexico in one county by serologic titer rises; and Georgia in one county by isolation of the virus. Ten States have now confirmed Influenza B in suspect cases. On the international scene, epidemics of Influenza B have been reported from Spain, Denmark and the United Kingdom. Deaths from pneumonia and influenza in 108 United States cities are moderately elevated above expected levels for the third consecutive week. Reported deaths along the Eastern Seaboard have not exceeded normal levels as yet." - p. [1]
