SCARLET FEVER CONTROL
Scarlet fever is prevailing to an un
due extent in several parts of North
Dakota. According to the State
Board of Health the unchallenged
presence of this disease is regrettable
because such unnecessary sickness and
premature death will inevitably result
unless vigorous repressive measures
are instituted. An understanding of
certain fundamental principles will do
much to reduce the heavy toll exact
ed by scarlet fever.
"The well developed case of scarlet
fever is readily recognized" says the
statement of the Board. "However,
the real danger arises from the mild
cases which are frequently not recog
nized as scarlet fever yet are respon
sible for the spread of the disease.
Merely because a case is mild is no
reason for regarding it lightly. The
infection from such a case often as
sumes a more virulent aspect when
communicated to other persons. The
vast majority of scarlet fever cases
result from contact between the sick
and the well. Occasionally milk plays
a part in transferring the infection.
"The process of discovering the par
ticular person responsible for the
spread ofscarlet fever," continues the
statement of the board, "depends upon
the fact that the individual most like
ly to acquire the disease are those
who have been most intimately in con
tact with an actual case. Thus, by
determining who were the close asso
ciates of the scarlet fever patient it
is frequently possible to discover per
sons with peeling skin, strawberry,
tongue, sore throat, reddened throat
or discharging ears, but whose condit
ion was not previously recognized as
being scarlet fever..
In certain instances the symptons
nay have been so mild or fleeting as
to have been overlooked. It is entire
ly possible that these so-called "miss
ed" cases serve as carriers of the dis
ease. In searching for carriers it is
well to reinspect patients who have
been released from quarantine. When^
such persons show evidence of sore or
red throat or discharge from the ear
they should be regarded as potential
sources of danger.
"When scarlet fever is present in a
community," concludes the statement
of the Board, "all suspicious cases
should be isolated until a diagnosis
can be made. 'Isolation first and di
agnosis afterwards' is an excellent
protective measure. The placarding
of homes in which scarlet fever is
SUSPECTED of being present is also
a procedure of distinct value. Scarlet
fever is a dangerous affection and
stringent measures looking to its elim
ination are always warranted.
During the Barnes County Institute
held in Valley City October 16th to
21st there was on exhibit a group of
splendid health posters, many of
which were made by children in the
rural schools of this county at the sug
gestion of Miss Work, county nurse.
The time of year, when hot school
lunches are considered necessary, is
fast approaching. That more rural
teachers might become interested a
demonstration was given, showing the
preparation of a hot lunch as it is ac
tually made in the rural school house.
A discussion followed and many help
ful questions were answered and those
v/ho had had experience, gave their
methods and ideas. Miss Work is am
bitious to have hot school lunches
served in all rural schools in the coun
ty, during the winter months, believ
ing that they would make for better
mental as well as better physical
health of the children. Those teach
ers who have tried it are very enthu
siastic about its results.
