Comrade Semashko or, in his absence, his acting deputy, People’s Commissariat for Public Health
Please let me know whether any cases of cholera or other infectious diseases have occurred in Moscow recently (especially in the last few days);
how many (if any);
what increase over earlier figures;
what measures of sanitary city cleaning or other sanitary measures have been decided upon (if any such decisions have been taken), and which have been carried out.
V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
