1 Sick 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 week as a resulta demobilization. Well men only are eligible for discharge, while the sick and otherwise disabled aro retained in service for further treatment. The continued influx of sick and wounded (properly chargeshle 10 CODmands overseas) is another factor tending to increase rates in the United States and to diminish oriespondingly similar rates overseas.

Cases of special diseases reported during the week ended May 2, 1919.
