Details:
  • Description:
    "A steady county-by-county progression of acute febrile respiratory illness is reported from most States in the North and Northeast. Subsiding activity is reported from South Central States as well as from those States involved in the early wave which moved in an arc across the United States during December and January. Alabama, Maryland, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Carolina have confirmed outbreaks of Influenza B, bringing the total number of States confirming Influenza B to 31 and the District of Columbia. Fifteen other States have experienced outbreaks of influenza-like disease but have not confirmed the presence of Influenza B. The remaining four States -- Hawaii, Louisiana, South Dakota, and Wyoming -- report that no significant outbreaks of acute respiratory disease have occurred. Czechoslovakia reports a rapid increase in the incidence of acute febrile respiratory disease; Influenza B virus has been isolated. A report in the New York Times states that Asian (A2) influenza is present in Tokyo, Japan. Official confirmation of this has not been obtained. (See Page 11.) Pneumonia-.influenza deaths in 108 cities of the United States showed a slight decrease this week bringing the number reported to the threshold line." - p. [1]
