One of the most immediate results
of the observation of strict measures
pertaining to influenza, is the start
ling number of coses reported as bav
ins; "recovered" since . institution of
strict quarantine, Saturday. City
Health Officer Dr. R. E. Pomsroy,
Monday, was besieged with phone
calls fsom physician who reported
that many of their influents patients
had fully recovered from the flu. Over
58 cases are now recorded as having:
fully emerged from the baneful effects
of the disease.
All of the 40 cases now under qoar-
artine in Salem have been placed un
der the measures Instituted Sa uruny
b tbe police committee. Ths new ban
on the disease Is as strlnget as quar-
... .u a cs of sari t fever or
smallpox and the authorities request
that all violations of these rules be re-
,or ed.
Physicians are required to report all
cases of Influenza, to 'he city health
authorities I has been report'' that
certain physicians have circulated
statements that Dr. Pomeroy was not
enf -re n- quara ine.
Now that the city health officer has
been given full authorty to enforce
quarantine provisions, these same phy
sicians, if there are any, are in turn
put up against it to comply with the
law by reporting all diseases. While
the source of the rumors in question
has not been determined. Dr. Pomeroy
has denied that he has ever failed to
enforce quarantine where reported.
In many cases, however, the physi
cian's report is delayed many horns.
In other instances, the deputy to the
city health officer has often had a
number of cases in widely separated
sections of the city, rendering a delay
in quarantine necessary. The city
health officer points out that these de
lays do not point to lack of enforce
ment. While many physicians agree w;!!i
Dr. Pomeroy that the present strin
gent measures may work a temporary
hardship upon those affected, vet the
city officials feel that the source of
wiae-spread rumors of careless en
forcement of influenza measure in Sa
lem, will be run to the ground. With
only two deaths attributed to Influen
za, Salem ia regarded to have been
urn flu season this
year, as compared to other cities in the
On the other hand, authorities urge
complete Isloation and thorough caj-e
of actual case of tho disease in order
to prevent a widespread epidemic.
Up to uoon, Monday, only 13 new
cases had bevn reported, covering thj
period, from Saturday evening to Mon
day midday. AU of theee cases are re
ported as being very light.
