CU flu cases seem to be leveling off
BOULDER, Colo. – Doctors at the University of Colorado in Boulder say the number of students they’ve been treating for swine flu seems to have leveled off.
Dr. Pam Talley, lead physician at CU’s Wardenburg Health Center, said Friday that between 100 and 150 students have contacted students with flu-like symptoms during each of the last three weeks.
So far, the university reports 92 probable cases of H1N1 flu, including four that have been confirmed by the state in a random sample. Since last week, the school has no longer been testing all students who have flu-like symptoms, only those who are extremely sick or have other health problems.
The university figures don’t take into account the many other students who have likely sought help from their own doctors off-campus.
