Abstract

A relatively severe and extensive epidemic of influenza occurred in South Africa in the late winter of 1950. Influenza virus B was isolated from three cases of an institutional outbreak early in the epidemic. Influenza virus A prime was isolated from cases occurring in the same institution during a second more severe and more extensive wave of the epidemic. Influenza virus A prime was also isolated from the lungs of two fulminating fatal cases. The Johannesburg influenza A prime virus was closely related to the Paris 1/49 strain of A prime virus.
