Typhus in Finland and East Karelia in 1942-1944



Typhus in Finland and East Karelia in 1942-1944



Duodecim; Laaketieteellinen Aikakauskirja 64(1): 1-23



In peace time this disease is practically nonexistent in Finland. A total of 1407 cases were diagnosed. The mortality rate was 11% when all the patients were included. It was highest among the Finns, 19%. 30% of the non-vaccinated Finnish patients died. In most of the vaccinated cases the disease was mild. Most were vaccinated according to Cox's method. The wooden standard "disinfection bath houses" were of decisive importance in delousing. They were manufactured in series, transportable in parts, and very quickly erected (1-2 days). The clothes can be heated while the owners are being deloused. 150 persons can be deloused in 10 hrs. in one bath house.
