A study of plague epidemic in West Bengal. I. Human plague and rodent infection and result of control and Surveillance operation (1948-1971)

Plague was first introduced into Calcutta from Hong Kong in 1895, although it had been present in other parts of India for many centuries. It persisted in endemic-epidemic form until 1918 and sporadically until 1924, when it apparently disappeared. It reappeared in 1948, and cases occurred in man up to 1952, with a peak in 1949. Control and surveillance work was started in 1948-49, and other measures were adopted in 1970.
