REPORTS ON EPIDEMICS.

by telegraph to the Medical Department of the Russian Ministry of
the Interior. On the cessation of the epidemic, after the lapse of
ten days from the death or recovery of the last patient, the same
Department must be advised of the fact by telegram, mention being
made, at the same time, of whatever sanitary precautions have been
adopted by the local authorities.1 A copy of each of these telegrams
must be sent by post to the First Department of the Russian Ministry
of Foreign Affairs, mentioning that the same information has been
forwarded to the Medical Department. All other information of a
less urgent character must be sent by letter and addressed to the
First Department of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs only,
where all matters dealing with the plague are dealt with.
Information regarding the plague, such as circulars, bulletins, reports,
newspaper cuttings, and so on, must be forwarded to the said Department
in duplicate, except when, from the voluminous character of the
communication, it would be inconvenient to do so."

According to the Code of Medical Regulations, in case of the
outbreak of plague, yellow fever, Asiatic cholera, &c., the country where
such an outbreak occurs is declared in be in an insanitary condition,
and all vessels, without exception, arriving from ports of that country,
are subject to the rules of quarantine. In the case of other diseases,
such as typhoid, small-pox, &c., such measures are only applied to
the vessel immediately concerned, while the country from which the
vessel has come is not declared to be insanitary.3

In order to enable the Finnish Senate to take the necessary
precautions to prevent the introduction into Finland of infectious diseases
of animals, Russian Consuls are required to inform, not only the
respective Ministries, but also the Finnish Senate, of all outbreaks of
such diseases in their Consular districts.4

Consular Officers residing in Central or Western Europe must,
on the appearance of epidemics in their Consular districts, report
the same not only to the ministries of Foreign Affairs and of Finance
and to the Home Ministry, but also to the Governor-General of Warsaw
and the Governors of the Province of Courland, of the South-West
Province and of Bessarabia.5

Consular Officers residing within the Ottoman Empire, in Persia
and in India are required to report cases of epidemics within their
Consular districts to the three Ministries mentioned above and also
to the Russian delegate at the Sanitary Council at Constantinople,6
