The newly infected countries were: Burundi, Congo, Rwanda, Zaire and Zambia in Afica, the Maldives in South- East Asia, Nauru in the Western Pacific and the United States of America. Eighteen countries in Africa reported a total of 23 317 cases as compared with 12 countries reporting 8 388 cases in 1977.
