Swine Flu At Wake Forest University

Officials at a North Carolina university say more than 80 students are thought to have swine flu.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported Tuesday that Wake Forest University plans to continue with classes as usual, though students who aren't feeling well have been told to stay home.

University spokesman Kevin Cox says two cases of swine flu were confirmed Friday and dozens of other ill students also are thought to have the H1N1 strain. Cox says most of the cases have been relatively mild and the students are being treated at the university's health service.

Doctors say most cases run their course naturally. Medical care is recommended if body temperature reaches 103 or higher, if there is vomiting, a rash or a change in behavior.
