Epidemics of Cholera and Yellow Fever.

JAMA. 1884;II(24):665. doi:10.1001/jama.1884.02390470021008

—Reports show that up to April 12, 1884, the cholera had been on the increase in Calcutta, while yellow fever prevails only very moderately in Rio de Janeiro, Havana and some other places within its native limits.

Whether either of these dreaded scourges will extend beyond their ordinary limits during the present summer remains to be seen. The health authorities in the South and Southwestern States are taking active measures to prevent any invasion of those States.
