DEATHS FROM NOTIFIABLE INFECTIOUS
DISEASES.
The deaths under this heading include those arising from Erysipelas
and Puerperal Fever, but exclude those due to Measles, Whooping
Cough and Diarrhoea; with this difference the deaths are those usually
classed as Zymotic.
The deaths under both heads are from " Preventable Diseases," as
in theory all diseases ought to be, and old age the sole cause of death;
but in this connection we only refer to the diseases amenable to Public
Health Administration and due to infection from person to person
There were 34 deaths registered from these diseases; 15 of them
occurring at the Isolation Hospital.
The deaths are considerably less in number than in previous years,
and comparatively so as to population.
The following table shows these deaths for 1908 and 1909 for the
whole district and for the Wards :—
