In 1944 the cumulative total for the same period was 68,499 and in 1949 it was 69,293. The incidence during the current period has been concentrated in the northeastern part of the country, 65 percent of the cases being reported by the New England and Middle Atlantic States. In 1949 the disease was more widespread, and, although large numbers were reported in the New England and Middle Atlantic States, they constituted only 34 percent of the total reported during the first 5 weeks of the year.
