  • Description:
    "The incidence of poliomyelitis, except in Texas, has been below that for 1951 since the beginning of the new "disease year" which started with the week ended April 3. For the 5weeks ended May 3,241 cases were reported for the United States, exclusive of Texas, as compared with 274 for the same period last year. Texas reported 119 cases for the same 5-week period of 1952 as compared with 41 in 1951. More than three fourths of the cases in recent weeks have occurred in the southern third of Texas, principally in the extreme southern and in the southeastern sections. The counties reporting the largest numbers of cases are Bexar, Harris, Nueces, Webb, and Jefferson in the southern part of the State, and Dallas and Tarrant in the northeastern section. Most of these also had relatively high rates of incidence in 1951. For the current week, 101 cases of poliomyelitis were reported with 2 States missing, as compared with 93 for the previous week. Texas reported 35 and 40 cases, respectively, for the weeks ended May to and May 3." - p. 1
