Excerpt: ... Table II. Showing deaths from Pneumonia during weeks similarly disposed to fogs, in the same manner for the years 1897-1910, added. Weeks preceding fogs: 6th 5th 4th 3d 2d 1st 1,351 1,389 1,345 1,442 1,442 1,494 Weeks of fog and following: 1st 2d 3d 4th 5th 6th 1,572 1,638 1,657 1,710 1,631 1,589 "There is here a clearly marked influence on mortality ascribed to pneumonia, greatest in the fourth week following the fog and next greatest in the third week. The effect on pneumonia is clearer than that on phthisis and ites maximum intensity is differently disposed, as if time were required for the development of the pneumococcus and the course of the disease." Table III. Showing deaths from bronchitis during weeks similarly disposed for the years 1897-1910. Weeks preceding fogs: 6th 5th 4th 3d 2d 1st 1,317 1,301 1,330 1,526 1,479 1,627 Weeks of fog and following: 1st 2d 3d 4th 5th 6th 1,808 1,864 1,848 1,699 1,729 1,749 "Here the maximum effect is manifested in the first three weeks following, the greatest effects being produced in the second week as in phthisis. The increment observed in the different forms of respiratory diseases before the occurrence of fog is due to the fact that the different fogs interfere from the proximity to each other. Thus, while the effect of the individual fog is diminished, the total effect in producing an increase in mortality becomes more conspicuous. The increase in mortality from bronchitis, like the increase from phthisis, follows more closely on fog than does that from pneumonia. The processes are probably different. In the case of phthisis and bronchitis, fogs cause congestion; in the case of pneumonia, they probably light up pneumonia. When the fogs are of longer duration than six days, the numbers are comparatively smal...
