ABSTRACT

After an absence of four months, cholera appeared in the city of Manila in July, 1914. The present epidemic, in which there were reported more than 1,100 cases, suspects and "carriers," did not differ greatly from the ordinary small epidemic. All patients, excepting those who died without medical attention, were treated at San Lazaro Hospital.

Of the number mentioned, 330 were genuine cases of cholera, 170 not cholera, and 570 were carriers, so-called; 99 were found dead and sent to San Lazaro morgue for confirmation of diagnosis. The total number of deaths with and without medical attention was 190.

The percentage of recoveries among those receiving medical attention at San Lazaro was 72.5.

When a patient is admitted to the hospital, a stool specimen is at once taken and sent to the Bureau of Science for bacteriologic examination, and no patient is discharged until at least two successive stool specimens
