Shigella surveillance report no. 13, MARCH 14, 1967
  • Description:
    Fourth Quarter 1966 A total of 3,309 isolations of shigella from humans were reported by the 54 reporting centers during the fourth quarter of 1966 (Table I). This number was a 5.4 percent increase over the 3,139 isolations reported during the third quarter. This slight increase is not inconsistent with the seasonal downward trend seen in the fourth quarter in past years. During the fourth quarter, 70.8 percent of the isolations of shigella were from children under 10 years of age (Table IV); this is consistent with the distributions of previous quarters. There was no apparent sex predilection seen in this quarter. The regional distribution continued as in previous quarters (Figure 1).
