Salmonella surveillance report ; no. 39, JULY 30, 1965
  • Description:
    For the Month of June, 1965. This month marks the completion of Dr. Charles E. McCall's two-year assignment with the Salmonella Surveillance Unit. Dr. McCall has returned to the Harvard University Medical Service at the Boston City Hospital as Senior Resident in Medicine. Dr. Richard N. Collins will now assume duties as Chief of the Salmonella Surveillance Unit. During June a total of 2,174 isolations of salmonellae from human sources were reported to the Salmonella Surveillance Unit for an average weekly total of 435. This represented an increase of 14 isolations per week over May 1965, and a decrease of 4 isolations per week from June, 1964. This conforms to the seasonal pattern of salmonellosis noted in this country during 1963 and 1964. Included under the section Current Investigations is a report on a recent program of surveillance of South American turtles and monkeys at the point of entry into the United States. A progress report on the continuing investigation of the large waterborne outbreak of Salmonella typhi-murium infection in Riverside, California, is also included under Current Investigations. A report of human isolations of salmonellae for the first quarter of 1965 from Belgium and the Netherlands is summarized in the International section.
