DECREASE AT SYDNEY.

INOCULATION TESTS

SYDNEY, April 24

: The influenza deaths in the metropolitan area show an appreciable decline in the past few days. Yesterday they fell to sixteen. The previous average for some time was oyer thirty. In the country, however, it is more virulent, and continues to spread. The Federal Health Authorities tested 3150 cases to prove the efficiency or otherwise of inoculation. Two thousand of these were not inoculated, of which thirty-four per cent contracted the disease in a severe form, and eleven per cent died. 1150 were inoculated, whereof sixteen per cent contracted influenza severely and three, per cent, died. These figures satisfied the quarantine authorities both as regards contracting the disease in a severe form and the prospects of a fatal termination, of the value of inoculation.
