Typhoid at Denaby

At the usual monthly meeting of the Doncaster and Hospital Board held at the Hospital at Conisbro’, yesterday, Mr W. H. Chambers presiding. Dr. McClure, the medical officer, reported there were 22 cases of typhoid fever under treatment.

Fourteen had been admitted during September, and of the total number no less than 21 were from Denaby.

The staff had been supplemented in order to deal with the extraordinary number of cases.

During a discussion it was stated that the Doncaster Rural District Council were remedying certain sanitary defects at Denaby, which may have been the cause of the outbreak.
