    Possible Swine Flu Outbreak At NYC Prep School - wcbstv.com

    NEW YORK (CBS) ―

    New York City health officials say that about 75 students at a Queens high school have fallen ill with flu-like symptoms and testing is under way to rule out the strain of swine flu that has killed dozens in Mexico.

    The Health Department's Dr. Don Weiss said Friday that a team of agency doctors and investigators were dispatched to the private St. Francis Preparatory School the previous day after students reported fever, sore throat, cough, aches and pains. No one has been hospitalized.

    The handful of sick students who remained at the school were tested for a variety of flu strains. If they're found to have a known human strain that would rule out swine flu.

    Results could take several days. In the meantime, the school says it's postponing an evening event and sanitizing the building over the weekend.
