For month of July 1964The Salmonella Surveillance Unit has been complemented by addition of Drs. Richard Collins and Read McGehee, EIS Officers, to the Unit. The extensive and expansive nature of the problem of salmonellosis in this country requires an enlarging task force. Drs. Collins and McGehee are welcome!During the month of July, 2,159 human isolations of salmonellae were reported, for an average weekly total of 432, a decrease of 7 from the June figure.The percentage of Salmonella derby isolations reported continues to drop (Table VII). Whether this represents a true drop in the incidence or reflects diminution of "interest" factors is as yet unclear.A total of 595 nonhuman isolations were reported in July, for an increase of 154 over last month.I. Summary -- II. Reports of isolations from the states -- III. Current investigations -- IV. Reports from states -- V. Special reports -- Vi. International -- VII. Food and feed surveillance.196
