An outbreak of typhoid fever in Samchunpo city was surveyed and the results were summarized as follows:
1. 638 of clinical cases were detected in 17 Dongs (districts) of the city of Samchunpo, (54,064), during the epidemic period from 1st September to the end of November, 1967.

3. The highest peak was reached in the third week of September and a second peak appeared at the end of September 1967.
4. The mode of infection was suspected strongly as a water-borne and the source of infection as an old public well called Gal-Dae-Saim, since the causative agent was found in close public latrine and the contaminated sewage ditch which was connected with the well.
5. All patients and carriers were treated at their home under the supervision of local medical authorities.
6. The Gal-Dae-Saim was closed immediately on 7th October, 1967 by the order of the mayor.
7. At the end of November, 1967 when the outbreak in Samchunpo was almost ended, another small epidemic occurred in Koseong county which bordered the eastern outskirt of the city.
