The Swine Flu and College

September 21, 2009 lovelycdc

The Swine Flu is taking over fast.  The Third College student to this from the virus died last Friday.  He was a junior at Cornell University.  His name was Warren J. Schor.  It was said that Cornell has 555 probable cases.  Many universities have quarantines where the sick students could go to be treated.

Washington State University has reported over 2,600 complaints of flu like symptoms.  they have also created a blog where people can go for updates.  The University of Florida is planning a website where students who are sick can go to watch lectures, ect, instead of missing out on their classes.

I feel as though all of the attempts to keep the students safe are very good, because it gives them a way to continue to get the education that they are paying for.  However, I think this invasive virus is taking too many innocent lives.  The quicker there is a way to stop the spread of the flu the better.

    Wow! It kind of scares me to be honesty. Just to know that you can get the swine flu.

    But what I think people need to do,is wash there hands all the time. Whatever you touch wash your hands. It is important for people. To cover the mouth when they cough whatever.
