Salmonella surveillance report ; no. 75
Details:
  • Description:
    For the Month of June 1968 This issue of the Salmonella Surveillance Report includes reports of an outbreak of salmonellosis caused by pet Easter chicks and two outbreaks on hospital pediatric wards. The problem of nosocomial salmonellosis and guidelines for its control are discussed. In June 1968, 1,556 isolations of salmonellae were reported from humans, an average of 389 isolations per week (Tables I, II, and V-A). This number represents an increase of 30 (8.4 percent) over the weekly average of May 1968 and an increase of 21 (5.7 percent) over the weekly average of June 1967. Reports of 777 nonhuman isolations of salmonellae were received during June 1968 (Tables III, IV, and V-B). Drs. Andrew Mallory and George Robinson have joined the Salmonellosis Unit, replacing Dr. Steven A. Schroeder, who is now pursuing further medical training at the Boston City Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts.
