Gloucester Smallpox Outbreak 1896

HC Deb 13 August 1896 vol 44 c744 744
§ MR. C. J. MONK (Gloucester)

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he can give from official sources reassuring reports respecting the present state of health in Gloucester so far as the smallpox epidemic is concerned?

§ MR. T. W. RUSSELL

In Gloucester, during the 30 completed weeks of 1896, January 4th to July 25th, smallpox cases were notified every week, the total number of cases notified being 2,008. I am glad to say that during the two complete weeks ending respectively August 1st and August 8th no smallpox cases have been certified.
