The Influenza Epidemic.

Influenza is spreading rapidly all over Sind and hundreds of villages are affected as well as Hyderabad, Sukkur, Larkana and other towns. Mortality in Karachi from influenza was 76 and on Sunday 74, which is nearly four times the normal total mortality. All places of amusement are placed out of bounds to military and services at Christ Church will be held in open air. At Hyderabad municipal schools are closed for a week. Influenza mortality in the Bombay city which touched 768 a day last week has dropped to 338 in a day. The “Times” wishes that the sanitary association would turn the epidemic into a blessing in disguise by utilising in a way to make permanently useful the lessons in sanitation that it has forced upon the people.
