Abstract

Summary

The incidence of infections with and among the Jewish population of Jerusalem during the years 1934 to 1960 based on the results of 126,000 fecal examinations is reported. Until 1948 the infection rate of both parasites was very high, infection being found in more than 40% of the population. During the last decade, since the separation of the Israeli part from the Jordanian part of Jerusalem, a sharp decline in the infection rate of both parasites has been noted. infections were almost eliminated. It is suggested that the complete stoppage of the supply of contaminated vegetables and fruits from Arab Jordanian villages was responsible for the remarkable drop of and infections in Israeli Jerusalem.
