    • Description:
      Third Quarter 1966 A total of 3,139 isolations of shigella from humans were reported by the 54 reporting centers during the third quarter of 1966 (Table I). This number was a 69.1 percent increase over the 1,856 isolations reported during the second quarter. This is in keeping with the increased seasonal trend seen in the third quarter in past years. During the third quarter, 70.6 percent of the isolations of shigella were from children under 10 years of age (Table II); this is consistent with the distributions of previous quarters. There was no apparent sex predilection as seen in the previous quarter when there was a predominance of males among the less than 5-year age group. The regional distribution continued as in previous quarters (Figure 1).
