    • Description:
      "For the current week there was a total of 9,294 cases of measles reported which was 14 percent higher than for the previous week and nearly 70 percent higher than the number reported for the same week of 1951. The disease is being reported in increasingly large numbers in several of the South Atlantic States . Incidence still remains high in the northeastern part of the country. The revised list of diseases recommended for weekly reporting by States to the Public Health Service formed the basis for the current week. The diseases being reported for the first time are brucellosis, dengue, infectious hepatitis, trichiniasis, endemic Typhoid fever, and rabies in man. Cases of dengue and rabies in man will be shown only in footnotes when they occur. Of the disease reported for the first time on a regular weekly basis, there were few cases of brucellosis. A considerable number of cases of infectious hepatitis (157) were reported. States reporting the largest numbers were: Georgia with 48, Tennessee with 20, and Kentucky with 16. Only 2 cases of trichiniasis, and 3of endemic typhus were reported. In addition to the above changes of scarlet fever and streptococcal sore throat will be combined in one figure. Paratyphoid fever has been ommitted, but typhoid fever cases will be reported. Influenza and pneumonia will no longer be included in morbidity tabulations." - p. 1
