DYSENTERY IN NORTHLAND

O.C. 4 WHANGAREI, this day. Spasmo'dic cases of diarrhoea are still being reported from various parts of Northland, but during the past week only one case of dysentery has been notified, this being in the Dargaville district, where previous fatal cases occurred during the week. Dr. L. S. Davis, Officer of Health, from Auckland, made an inspection tour of Northland, going as far north as Tekao. From reports received from district nurses it appears the epidemic is on the wane, but with cases still being reported Dr. Davis has considered that [children should not be admitted to the health camp at Maunu, near Whangarei, till the north is free from the disease. The first draft of children was to have entered camp next week, but now the camp will not open for at least a month to si7i weeks, although the majority of the staff are in residence.
