The death-rate for Diphtheria for England and Wales was 18 per
or slightly greater than for this district.
The marked decline in the sickness and death-rate from these diseases
since the Sanatorium was opened has been maintained during the year.
With a fuller use of isolation and prompt removal of'first cases, a
further decline should take place.
The following Table shows the estimated population, the number of
cases of Diphtheria and Membranous Croup, the attack rate since 1890,
and the death-rate since 1898:—
