S. Public Health Service Issues Official Health Bulletin on Influenza. LATEST WORD ON SUBJECT. Epldemlo Probably Not Spanish In Origin Germ Still Unknown Peo ple Should Guard Against -Droplet Infection" Surgeon General Blue Makes Authoritative Statement. Washington, D. C. (Special.) Al though King Alfonso of Spain was one of the victims of the Influenza epi demic In 1S03 and again this summer, Spanish authorities repudiate any claim to Influenza as a "Spanish" dis ease.' If the people of this country do not take core the epidemic will be come so widespread throughout the United States that soon we shall hear the disease called "American" influ enza. In response to a request for definite Information concerning Spanish Influ enza, Surgeon General Rupert Blue of the U. S. Public Ilealth Service has authorized the following official Inter view: What Is Spanlch Influenza? Is It something new? Does It come from Spain? "The disease now occurring In this country and called 'Spanish Influen za' resembles a very contagious kind of 'cold accompanied by fever, pains Coughs and Sneezes Spread Diseases As Dangerous as ftofeon Cm Shells in the bead, eyes, ears, back or other parts of the body and a feeling of se vere sickness. In most of the cases the symptoms disappear after three or four days, the patient then rapidly recover ing. Some of the patients, however, develop pneumonia, or Inflammation of the ear, or meningitis, and many of these complicated cases die. Whether this so-called 'Spanish Influenza Is Identical with the epidemics of influen za of earlier years is not yet known. "Epidemics of Influenza have visited this country since 1647. It is interest ing to know that this first epidemic was brought here from Valencia, Spain. Since that time there have been numerous epidemics of the dis ease.; In 18S0 and 1800 an epidemic of Influenza, starting somewhere in the Orient, spread first to Russia and thence over practically the entire civ ilized world. Three years later there was another flare-up of the disease Both times the epidemic spread wide ly over the United States. ; "Although the present epidemic is called 'Spanish Influenza,' there is no reason to believe that it originated in Spain. Some writers who have studied e question believe that the epidemic came from the Orient and they call at tention to the fact that the Germans mention the disease as occurring along the eastern front in the summer and fall of 1917." How can "Spanish Influenza" b rec ognized? ' "There Is as yet no certain way in which a single case of 'Spanish influ enza' can be recognized. On the oth er hand, recognition is easy where there is a group of cases. In contrast to the outbreaks of ordinary coughs and colds, which usually occur In the cold months, epidemics of Influenza may eccur at any season of the year. ,Thus the present epidemic raged most intensely in Europe In May, June and July. Moreover, in the case of ordi nary colds, the general symptoms (fever, pain, depression) are by no 'means as severe or as sudden In their onset as they are In Influenza. Final ly, ordinary colds do net spread through the community so rapidly or SO extensively as does influenza. : "In most cases a person taken sick with Influenza feels sick rather sud denly. Be feels weak, has pains in the eyes, ears, head or back, and may be sore all over. Many patients feel dizzy, some vomit Most of the pa tients complain of feeling chilly, and with this comes a fever In which1 the temperature rises to 100 to 104. In (most cases the pulse remains relative ly slow. , "In appearance one Is struck by the (fact that the patient looks sick. Ills eyes and the Inner side of bis eyelids may be slightly 'bloodshot,' or 'con gested as the doctors say. There may b running from the nose, or there may be some cough. These signs of cold may not be marked; never theless the patient looks and feels very sick. "In addition to the appearance and the symptoms as already described, examination of the patient's blood may aid the physician' In recognising 'Span ish Influenza for It has been fonnd that In (Els' disease the "number of white corpuscles shows little or no In crease above the normal it Is possi ble that the laboratory Investigations know being made through the National Research Council and the United States Ilyglenlc Laboratory will fur nish a more certain way In which Indi vidual coses of this disease can be recognized." What Is the course of the disease? Do people die of It? - "Ordinarily, the fever lasts from three to four days and the putlent re covers. But while the proportion of deaths In the present epidemic has generally been low. In some places the outbreak has been severe and deaths have been numerous. When death oc curs It Is usually the result of a com plication." What causes the disease and how Is It spread? "Bacteriologists who have studied in fluenza epidemics In the past have found in many of the cases a very Small rod-shaped germ called, after Its discoverer, Pfelffer's bacillus. In other coses of apparently the same kind of disease there were found pneumococcl, the germs of lobar pneumonia. Still others have been caused by strepto cocci, and by others germs with long names. "Konatter what particular kind of germ-louses the epidemic, it is now believed that Influenza is always spread from person to person, the germs being carried with the air along with the very small droplets of mucus, expelled by coughing or sneezing, forceful talking, and the like by one who already has the germs of the dis ease. They may also be carried about in the air In the form of dust coming from dried mucus, from coughing and sneezing, or from careless people who spit on the floor and on the sidewalk. As in most other catching diseases, a person who has only a mild attack of the disease himself may give a very severe attack to others." What should be done by those who catch the disease? "It is very Important that every per son who becomes sick with Influenza should go home at once and go to bed. .This will help keep awuy dangerous complications and will, at the same time, keep the patient from scattering the disease far and wide. It is highly desirable that no one be allowed to sleep in the same room with the pa tient In fact no one but the nurse should be allowed in the room. "If there is cough and sputum or running of the eyes and nose, care should be taken that all such dis charges are collected on bits of gauze or rag or paper napkins and burned. If the patient complains of fever and headache, be should be given water to drink, a cold compress t the forehead and a light sponge. Only such medi cine should be given as is prescribed by tbo doctor. It Is foolish to ask the druggist to prescribe and may be dan gerous to take the so-called 'safe, sure and harmless' remedies advertised by patent medicine manufacturers. "If the patient Is so situated that he can be attended only by some one who must also look after others In the fam ily, it is advisable that Such attendant wear a wrapper, opron or gown over the ordinary house clothes while in the sick room and slip this off when leav ing to look after the others. . "Nurses and attendants will 'do well to guard against breathing In danger ous disease germs by wearing a simple fold of gauze or mask while near the patient" Will a person who has had Influenza before catch the disease again? "It Is well known that an attack of measles or scarlet fever or smallpox usually protects a person against an other attack of the same disease. This appears not'to be true of 'Spanish In fluenza.' According to newspaper re ports the King of Spain suffered nn attack of influenza during the epi demic thirty years ago, and was again stricken during the recent outbreak in Spain." How can one guard against Influ enza?: ' . "In guarding against disease of all kinds, It Is Important that the body be 'kept strong and uble to fight off dis ease germs. This can be done by hav ing a proper proportion of work, play and rest, by keeping the body well clothed, and by eating sufficient whole some and properly selected food. In connection with diet It is well to re member that milk is one of the' best all-around foods obtainable for adults as well as children. So far as a dis ease like Influenza Is concerned, health authorities everywhere recognize the very close relation between its spread and overcrowded homes. While it la not always possible,', especially in times like the present to avoid such overcrowding, people should consider the health danger and make every effort to reduce the home overcrowd ing to a minimum. The value of fresh air through open windows cannot be overemphasized. "When crowding is unavoidable, as In street cars, care should be taken to seep me lace so lurnea as not to ln-n bale directly the air breathed oat by t , "It Is especially Important to be ware of the person who coughs or sneezes without covering his month and nose. It also follows that one should keep out of crowds and stuffy places -as much as possible, keep homes, offices and workshops well aired, spend some time out of doors each day, walk to work If at all prac ticable in short, make every possible effort to breathe as much pure air as possible. ' "In oil health matters follow the ad vice of your doctor and obey the regu lations of your local and stats health officers." "Cover up each cough and -sneeze, If you dent you'll spread disease."
