Cornell University Hit With
'Flood' Of Swine Flu Cases
Cornell Student From Clinton Corners Dies From H1N1

From Patricia A. Doyle DVM, PhD
ITHACA - A 20-year-old Cornell University student from Clinton Corners has died of complications of the H1N1 virus, university officials confirmed Friday.
Warren J. Schor, a member of the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity who was living at the fraternity house on Edgecliff Place on North Campus, died Friday at Cayuga Medical Center. Schor was a student in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, according to Cornell's online directory.
The campus has dealt with a flood of incidences of the disease, but no deaths until now. As of Friday, the school's health service had reported dealing with more than 520 cases, many of which have been students calling in from home, Vice President for Communications Tommy Bruce said.
"One of things I wanted to say is to reassure everyone that Cornell has been working really hard at this issue," Bruce said Friday. "We have been prepping for a pandemic for three years, and since this season has come around, we've been working around the clock."
All flu cases that are identified currently are assumed to be H1N1, since the seasonal flu is not known to be circulating this early in the season.
Zeta Beta Tau, an historically Jewish fraternity, could not be reached Friday for comment.
Cornell President David Skorton released a statement Friday evening informing the campus and press of Schor's death.
"The university has been in close contact with Warren's family, and we wish to convey our heartfelt condolences to them and to his many friends," Skorton said. "Please keep them in your thoughts in the following days."
Those who become ill should consider getting medical attention if they have a temperature more than 100 degrees, or experience difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, sudden dizziness, pain or pressure in the chest, a change in their level of consciousness, or severe or persistent vomiting.
