(iv) QUARANTINE STATION .
Lt. M.L.A. Steele was in charge as Quarantine
Medical Officer throughout the year except for a period
of leave from the 20th July to the 25th October when
Dr. Bhandarkar of the State Medical Hospital officiated
in his place.
The quarantine service in Bahrain has arxptie
progressed during the last few years, credit for which
goes to Dr. Steele, whose efforts in this cause under
difficult local conditions have had effect.
Some idea of the progress and efficacy of
this service may be gauged from the following figures
of Bahrain*s worst epidemic, small poxs-

The quarantine station is situated near
Muharraq. fhe site is admirable in that it is cut off
from ohe town at high tide. There are two buildings
with accommodation for about 150 persons. This station
is designed for local use only, it was expanded and
improved in 1941 and the following years. Compulsory
segregation of infected cases and mass vaccination were
also introduced at the same time. No facilities for
segregation of passengers from ships and ’planes, if
necessary, exist at present, but it is hoped that some
arrangements to this end will be made soon.
A total of 62 passenger steamers and about
20 tankers and freighters were visited by the Quarantine
Medical Officer during the year under review.
At present no effective quarantine arrangements
have been made for yellow fever, as the expense involved
v/ould be too high and not justified by the circumstances,
as only passengers of the British Overseas Airways Cor
poration S, C" class ’planes, which touch at yellow fever
infected areas en route are affected.*

Mr. Rajab Ali was the Sub-post Master through
out the year assisted by four clerks. 6
*The quarantine staff is too small
to keep a vigilant check on the
crew and passengers of country-craft.
