Emory Students With Swine Flu Housed Together

Officials with Emory University in Atlanta say around 50 students with swine flu have been moved to a separate dorm. Those students are not attending classes and school workers are bringing them food.

An Emory spokesman says the goal is to keep the students separate while they recover. All students are there on a voluntary basis, and have his or her own room in the dorm.

Emory has about 7,000 undergraduate students with an additional 6,000 graduate students on its Atlanta-campus.

State health officials say that since swine flu emerged in the spring, four people have died from the virus and 147 have been hospitalized in Georgia as of Aug. 26.
