Swine Flu Hits FIU

Three FIU students have tested positive for the H1N1 virus, AKA swine flu. Six others have shown symptoms.  

Oscar Loynaz, interim director of University Health Services, says a dozen cases have been confirmed in the school's community since the epidemic began. None appears to be potentially life-threatening. 

Most of the affected students live on campus, and though they're not under quarantine, the school has asked them to take precautions while receiving treatment.
