Cumberland is very healthy

Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information



Very Few Sick People and Death Rate Has Dropped to Minimum Now.

According to records at the City Health Department, Cumberland is in the healthiest state known in its history. For the first week in August, the deaths averaged one a day, considered remarkably low according to the population.
There are only four cases of sickness on the daily bulletin board, three pneumonia and one case of typhoid, this being a 12-year-old girl from Paw Paw, W. Va., being treated in a local hospital.

For the past year Cumberland has had one case of typhoid attributed to drinking "pure" well water in the country.

July, August and September are the typhoid fever months in the year, but in recent years since the sanitation laws have been enforced and the Evitts Creek water system has been in use, this former scourge of Cumberland has been gradually eliminated and brought down to a few isolated cases.
