Throw another pork chop on the grill; the swine flu frenzy is just heating up.
The Sun-Times reports in a headline today: “Notre Dame student has swine flu.”
Indiana health officials reported the state’s first confirmed case of swine flu Tuesday in a student at the University of Notre Dame.
Although there have been no confirmed cases in Illinois, the University of Chicago Medical Center is “investigating a small number of potential swine flu cases,” spokesman John Easton said late Tuesday. “None of these people is severely ill.”
Easton wouldn’t say how many people had been tested.
Read just a bit further down in the story, and you have to wonder what the squealing is all about:
The unidentified Notre Dame student “has fully recovered and is in good health” after seeking treatment for flu-like symptoms at the university’s health center on April 22, the school said in a statement.
The student has fully recovered and is in good health.
Oh. So the student HAD swine flu, and is fine now.
Forget that. Time to start screaming in the streets. Light candles at the Grotto! Maybe it’s time for ND students to “T-P” the Dome in panic. What is the administration doing? Call in the National Guard! Put Notre Dame on lock down!
Or, make sure you cough into the back of your arm if you have a cough, don’t touch your face, and wash your hands as necessary.
