DISEASE CONDITIONS AMONG TROOPS IN THE UNITED STATES.

The following data are taken from telegraphic reports received in the office of the Surgeon General of the United States Army for the week ended June 6, 1919. Reports from the American Expeditionary Forces are delayed in transmission, and the “current week” for troops in the American Expeditionary Forces is not the same period as "current week” for troops in the United States.

1 gick and death rates among troops in the United States will continue to be relatively high, as the numerical strength of troops in the United States continues to decline from week to work as a result of demobilization. Well men only are eligible for discharge, while the sick and otherwise disabled are retained in service for further treatment. The continued influx of sick and wounded (properly chargeable to commands overseas) is another factor tending to increascrates in the United States and to diminish correspondingly similar rates overseas,

Cases of special discases reported during the week ended June 6, 1919.
