Study of infection and disease rates in home contacts is useful on various counts. As we are confronted with the problem of evaluation of domiciliary treatment, the main purpose of this investigation will, therefore, be determination of the hazard to which contacts are exposed when cases are treated at home. The danger of contact, therefore, might have been minimised by preventive value of drug treatment and home segregation. Segregation, however, was very inadequate in vast majority of cases due to the bad living conditions.
