Report of the Department of Health of the Panama Canal free pdf Excerpt from Report of the Department of Health of the Panama Canal: For the Year 1914 Sir: I have the honor to submit the following report of the operations of the department of health for the calendar year 1914. One case of smallpox was removed from the Pacific Mail Steamship Newport on April 16, and recovered. With this exception, no cases of yellow fever, smallpox, or plague originated on or were brought to the Isthmus during the year. The department was completely reorganized on April 1, as set forth in detail in my annual report for the fiscal year. There has been a steady reduction in force and expenses throughout the year. The cost of the department for the year was $1,094,682.92, as compared with $1,484,941.09 for 1913. The average number of employees on the rolls during the year was 44,329, as compared with 56,664 for 1913. There has been a large shifting of population from all along the line toward the Pacific end of the canal. Two new towns, La Boca and Balboa, have come into being, the former with a population of about 4,000, and the latter about 1,200. A census of the Canal Zone has been taken three times during the year, the last showing a net decrease of more than 14,000 persons since January, 1913. More than half of our employees are now living in Panama. The census of Panama and Colon, taken in August and September, 1914, showed an increase in the population of these cities of 12,828 in Panama and 9,099 in Colon. During the year a general vaccination was done in all the schools of the Canal Zone, as well as those of Panama and Colon- 117 children were vaccinated in the Canal Zone, 5,186 in Panama, and 1,097 in Colon. The percentage of "takes" in the Canal Zone was 67- in Panama, 80- and in Colon, 80. In addition to the vaccinations in the schools, 33, 204 other vaccinations were done, with a percentage of 68 "takes." A plan for a thorough annual physical examination of all gold employees has been approved and the work was started in December.
