Abstract

This is a response to the recent contribution by Flurin Condrau and Michael Worboys on epidemics and infections in the nineteenth century. We present data from New England showing that infectious disease deaths were in the majority in the nineteenth century. In the data we examine, the epidemiologic transition is intact.
