AOL News: More than 2,000 students at Washington State University have come down with swine flu symptoms in just the first week of classes, school officials said Friday.
Classes at the Pullman, Wash., campus began little over a week ago, demonstrating how quickly the H1N1 virus can spread.

The university, where 18,500 students live and study, is advising those who manifest flu-like symptoms to skip class. “We’re telling them to follow the advice of the experts: Go to bed, drink fluids, take acetaminophen and monitor your temperature,” said spokesman James Tinney.

A presidential panel estimates that upward of half of the U.S. population could come down with the H1N1 this year.

    Don,

    They use a test where they take a swab from your nasal cavity. Then they test it for the flu. I’m not sure what it is called.

    warning that the new swine flu jab is linked to a deadly nerve disease has been sent by the Government to senior neurologists in a confidential letter.
    The letter from the Health Protection Agency, the official body that oversees public health, has been leaked to The Mail on Sunday, leading to demands to know why the information has not been given to the public before the vaccination of millions of people, including children, begins.
    It tells the neurologists that they must be alert for an increase in a brain disorder called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), which could be triggered by the vaccine.
