INFESTATION BY HEAD LICE
During 1949 there was no evidence of special
incidence of infestation by head lice.
D.D.T. preparations were used in addition to the
usual cleansing by water and soft soap or shampoo.
The measures described in previous reports are
still in force and fulfil the terms of Circular 2831,
Ministry of Health.
It was not found necessary to take any statutory
action for infestation by lice during the year.
