    • Description:
      Second quarter 1966 A total of 1,856 human shigella isolations were reported from the 53 reporting centers during the second quarter of 1966, representing an 11.6 percent decrease from the 2,099 isolations reported during the first quarter of 1966 (same reporting centers). The number of isolations reported during the first quarter of 1966 represented a 13.6 percent decrease from the total of 2,429 isolations reported during the fourth quarter of 1965. During April, May, and June, 70.8 percent of shigella isolations were reported from children under 10 years of age, which compared with 70.7 percent during the first quarter of 1966. As in the first quarter, no sex predilection for shigella was apparent during this quarter. A predominance of males among the less than 5-year age group was observed.
