I am glad to be able to notice the increase in number of cases of
Scarlet Fever treated in hospital. Whereas last year 176 of the 393
cases notified were brought to hospital, this year 30 more cases were
brought to hospital, although the increase in the number of cases
notified was only four. It is well, therefore, that we were able to
accommodate more patients, though there is still room for improvement
in this matter.
It is regrettable that there is not the same improvement to report
in regard to diphtheria cases brought to hospital, but as accommodation
has been limited and further decreased by desultory outbreaks of
Measles, Chicken Pox, etc., necessitating closing and quarantining of
wards, there is good ground for the decrease in admissions to
hospital.
