Salmonella surveillance report ; no. 57, FEBRUARY 8, 1967
  • Description:
    This issue of the Salmonella Surveillance Report contains details of an interstate outbreak due to a lactose-fermenting salmonella, a discussion of a holiday outbreak due to a catered meal in Georgia, and a further progress report on salmonella contamination of powdered milk. In December 1966, 1,477 isolations of salmonellae were reported from humans, an average of 369 isolations per week (Tables I and II). This number represents a decrease of 55 (13.0 percent) from the weekly average of November 1966 and an increase of 2 (0.5 percent) over the weekly average of December 1965. The cumulative number of isolations reported for the first 12 months of 1966 (20,058) represents a decrease of 4.0 percent from the total number of isolations reported during this same period in 1965 (20,886). Reports of 695 nonhuman isolations of salmonellae were received during December, a decrease of 331 (32.3 percent) from November 1966 (Tables IV, V, and VI). We are sorry to report the departure of three members of our staff, Drs. John R. Boring and Albert R. Martin, and Mr. Stanley M. Martin. Dr. Boring has moved to the Emory University School of Medicine where he is Assistant Professor of Preventive Medicine and Community Health. Dr. Martin is starting an 18-month assignment at the Pakistan-SEATO Cholera Research Laboratory at Dacca, Pakistan, and Mr. Martin has been inducted into the United States Army.
