SECTION II.
Notifiable Diseases.
The number of cases of Infectious Disease which have been
reported under the Infectious Diseases Notification Act during the
year was 183. Eleven of these cases occurred in the London County
Asylum, Norwood, so that the number occurring amongst members
of our population proper was 172.
The increase was due to the fact that Chicken Pox was a
Notifiable Disease for 6 months of the year from March to
September, during which period 73 cases were notified. Deducting
these the increase in the cases ordinarily notified is 25, due to Scarlet
Fever, Erysipelas and Diphtheria.
