CONTAGIOUS DISEASES IN POLAND AND THE BATTLE AGAINST THEM
ARMY BIOLOGICAL LABS FREDERICK MD
Pagination or Media Count:
The media spreading diseases in Poland are pastures which have been anthrax infected and dead animals. A new phenomenon of recent years is the spreading of the disease among animals kept for their fur, like minks and foxes which are fed contaminated dead animals or meat from slaughtered sick animals. The largest number of cases is reported in the eastern part of the country and occurs mainly during the summer months. The registration of humans who had anthrax was begun in Poland in 1919. Because of diagnostic difficulties and because of a small number of cases relative to other diseases, and therefore only a superficial concern with this disease, the available information does not reflect probably the actual state of affairs.
