    "There have been no reports of significant outbreaks of Influenza B in the United States since the last Surveillance Report on March 22, 1962. Four additional States - Louisiana, Ney Hampshire, Rhode Island, end South Dakota - have recently confirmed Influenza B. The total number of States confirming Influenza B this season is 43. A concise summary of the Influenza B epidemic in the United States is included. A laboratory report describes the relationship of the current B strains to previous strains of virus. Asian influenza has not been prevalent in the United States during the past season. A single recent outbreak in Bellingham Washington is reported. International reporting or Influenza A and B during the current season is summarized in tables and maps. Pneumonia and influenza deaths exceeded the expected number in a bi-modal distribution during the early months of 1962. They have remained within normal ranges since the second week in April. Attached as a supplement are the recommendations of the Surgeon General's Advisory Committee on Influenza. Of particular note is the committee's concurrence in the belief that widespread outbreaks of Influenza A (Asian) may be anticipated in the United States during the 1962-63 winter season." - p. [1]
