Ah the joys of a terrible stomach flu on a college campus. As of last night, the latest numbers were out: "The number of USC students with norovirus, a highly contagious gastrointestinal virus, has reached 330 over the last five days, university officials said Tuesday.... The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health confirmed that the virus is the norovirus, which periodically breaks out on campuses, cruise ships and in nursing homes." The Daily Trojan reports the same numbers in an article today and says the end is in sight.
