Swine flu spreading at South Florida universities


Swine flu spreading at South Florida universities

Cases mild, brief and too few to be considered an outbreak

Florida Atlantic University has tallied almost 100 students presumed to have the new strain of H1N1 flu since mid-summer, only one of whom may have gone to the hospital while at home, said Cathie Wallace, director of student health services. Two sick students with roommates at the main Boca Raton campus briefly moved to empty dorm rooms.

"We are seeing students with the flu on a daily basis. We have not seen a huge surge," Wallace said. "It's like it was during the summer. We are seeing most of the cases in our commuter students."
