Salmonella surveillance report ; no. 44, JANUARY 13, 1966
  • Description:
    For the Month of November 1965

    A total of 1,557 isolations of salmonella were reported during November, representing a decrease of 353 from October. The average number of isolations per week (389) represented a decrease of 89 from November 1964. The decrease this month (illustrated in Figure 1) was seasonally expected. Nonhuman isolations during November totaled 579, a decrease of 182 from October.

    A report of a large common source outbreak of Salmonella enteritidis gastroenteritis traced to a restaurant chain in Georgia is described under REPORTS FROM THE STATES. Follow-up information of the recent outbreak of typhoid fever in Switzerland is now available, and is included in the INTERNATIONAL section along with a review of recent isolations of salmonellae from animals, foods, and feeds in West Germany.

    A new series of review articles is initiated this month under SPECIAL REPORTS.

    This series prepared by the Salmonella Surveillance Unit and entitled “Current Concepts in Salmonellosis" will review selected aspects of salmonellosis of interest to laboratorians and epidemiologists with pertinent references to the recent literature on the subject. The initial article this month deals with the status of typhoid vaccines. Comments and contributions are invited.
