Excerpt from Annual Report of the Surgeon General of the Public Health Service of the United States: For the Fiscal Year 1922 Sir: In accordance with the act approved July 1, 1902, I have the honor to submit, for transmission to Congress, the following report of the operations of the United States Public Health Service for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1922. This is the fifty-first annual report of the service, covering the one hundred and twenty-fourth year of its existence. These operations have related both to measures for the protection of the public health and the rendering of care and treatment to beneficiaries, including veterans of the World War. The year has been eventful from a service standpoint, both because of an increasing resumption of public health work and the relinquishment of certain functions hitherto performed in relation to the care and treatment of ex-service men and women. With the exception of localized outbreaks, there has been an absence of epidemic diseases through the country during the year. Both the morbidity and mortality rates have been lower than in previous years. Every effort has been made to secure and disseminate promptly information regarding health in the United States; and through medical and consular officers abroad, careful watch has been kept on the occurrence of epidemic diseases throughout the world. Bubonic plague is perhaps the most widespread of all diseases of a pestilential character in the world, except smallpox. In the early part of the present fiscal year this disease threatened to become epidemic in the southern part of the United States, particularly in cities of the Gulf coast, but prompt and radical measures applied to local conditions in Galveston, Beaumont, and Pensacola, where the disease had gained a foothold, and the continuation of the measures already in force in New Orleans, served to avert its spread. Yellow fever foci were reported during the year in widely scattered areas on both the eastern and western coasts of Mexico, the eastern coast of Central America, and certain portions of the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of South America. In spite of close and active commercial relations with infected ports, and the occurrence of five cases of this disease on ships arriving at domestic ports situated in infectible territory, the disease was successfully excluded from our country. Cholera, smallpox, and typhus fever were prevalent in many European countries. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
