There are hundreds of potential swine flu cases on the UW-Madison campus. UW-Madison officials confirm the H1N1 flu virus is on campus. Yet they stress no one has been hospitalized. Student Stephanie Coleman was diagnosed with H1N1 in the spring and was told she has it again.
“It’s more like a cold,” Miller says of the virus. “But you get it all at once, instead of gradually getting it. It just all hits you at one time, so you’re kind of just ‘dead’ in your bed, just miserable.”
UW officials say well over 200 students have been in and tested for the virus, with many cases confirmed. On the Madison Area Technical College campus, three students are confirmed to have H1N1 as well. They’re currently working from home.
