There were no deaths from this disease, although there were
four from allied diseases.
There were 10 deaths from Tuberculosis, 7 from Phthisis
(Consumption), and 3 from other tuberculous diseases.
In each case, as formerly, that has come under my notice
infectiousness of the disease has been explained, and disinfectants

Disinfection after removal and fatal cases has been offered,
