Swine flu cases at WSU jump up again

Posted:

PULLMAN, Wash. - The number of people reporting flu-like symptoms at Washington State University doesn't appear to be dropping.

Health and Wellness Services reported 169 students contacted them Tuesday to report symptoms consistent with the swine flu. That's similar to the daily numbers reported last week.

The number of people reporting the flu dropped a lot during the Labor Day holiday, when many students left campus.

About 2,500 students have contacted Health and Wellness Services with flu-like symptoms since school began in late August. Nobody has been hospitalized, and most patients have mild symptoms and are better in three to five days.
