Description:This 1976 image depicts an aerial view of the Fort Dix, New Jersey, barracks, which was the site of the first outbreak of the A/New Jersey/76 strain of influenza A (H1N1) serotypes, which in 1976 were labeled Hsw1N1, influenza virus.
In early 1976, the novel A/New Jersey/76 (Hsw1N1) influenza virus caused severe respiratory illness in 13 soldiers with 1 death at Fort Dix, New Jersey. Since A/New Jersey was similar to the 1918–1919 pandemic virus, rapid outbreak assessment and enhanced surveillance were initiated. A/New Jersey virus was detected only from January 19 to February 9 and did not spread beyond Fort Dix.
