Epidemic in Los Angeles.—
The Los Angeles City Health Department in the Bulletin of the Los Angeles County Medical Association January 15 reported a "widespread outbreak of some sort of upper respiratory infection in Los Angeles." Clinical symptoms vary too much to implicate any single specific disease. Both upper respiratory and gastrointestinal symptoms are reported. The disease, the report continues, is probably caused by a virus and has a short incubation period (two days plus).
