    "The epidemic of Influenza Type B which began on the West Coast of the United States and in the southern part of Florida, subsequently spanning the United States in a broad arc through the Midwestern and Southeastern States, continues a progressive spread through the North and Northeast sections of the country. Outbreaks of acute febrile respiratory disease indicate active spread of the illness along the Eastern Seaboard from Georgia to Maine, and in the States adjacent to the Great Lakes. Eight States reported outbreaks of influenza-like disease for the first time this week. Four of these, Connecticut, Maine, Rhode Island, and Virginia, are on the East Coast; the others are Idaho, Michigan, Mississippi, and West Virginia. Continuing outbreaks of increased school-absenteeism due to influenza-like disease are reported in new counties from 13 States. In the Northeast, there are Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, and Vermont, and in the Great Lakes area, Illinois, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Spread of the illness was also reported from Florida, Kansas, Nebraska, Nevada, and Tennessee. Confirmation of Influenza B outbreaks by isolation or serologic titer rises is reported from 8 additional States - Connecticut, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, New jersey, end New York. A total of 26 States and the District of Columbia have confirmed Influenza B outbreaks. Five States report that no significant outbreaks of acute febrile respiratory disease have occurred during the present season. These are Delaware, Hawaii Louisiana, South Dakota, and Wyoming. The remaining States (19) have experienced outbreaks during recent months. The number of pneumonia-influenza deaths in 108 cities of the United States decreased during the past week but remained above the epidemic level for the fifth consecutive week." - p. [1]
