    "Although no weekly reports on malaria were received last year, until the first week in September, the increase which began about the first of April this year was a few weeks earlier than the rise for 195l, as indicated by information from the Division of Preventive Medicine, Office of the Surgeon General of the Army, The chart below shows the weekly incidence of malaria among civilians and military establishments for the first 22 weeks of 1952. For the week ended April 5, 134 cases in Georgia were excluded from the total. This figure represents an accumulation of delayed reports from military installations, Some of these cases date back as far as 6 months. For the current week there were 181 cases, or a slight increase over the 170 reported last week. Of the total this week, 41 cases were in civilians. Several States are now indicating, as they did late in 1951, that civilian cases were among veterans or that the source of infection was outside the United States. Beginning with the week ended April 5, Texas (42) and Wisconsin (23) reported almost 40 percent of the civilian cases (163). However, Wisconsin has reported cases as military for the past 2 weeks. During this period a total of 814 cases has been reported with a large number of States and the District of Columbia reporting either 1 or no cases.es. The largest number of military cases was reported in Kentucky, 75. Other States reporting large numbers were: Georgia, 70; California, 65; Louisiana, 61; Virginia, 57; and South Carolina, 54. Puerto Rico bas reported 40 cases of malaria, not designated as civilian or military, since the first of April. More than half of these cases were for the last 2 weeks when 13 and 11, respectively, were reported. A few single intermittent cases have been reported in Hawaii. However, there were 2 cases for the current week. The number of cases of poliomyelitis for this week is 119 as compared with 147 for the previous week. Up to the present time California and Texas have been reporting by far the largest numbers of cases. For the current week, California and Texas reported 20 and 33 cases, respectively, which were decreases from the numbers reported for last week, For the other States there were no apparent Increases over the previous week, except in Florida and Louisiana, where the rise was from 4 to 9, and 3 to 14, respectively." - p. 1
