The number of students at USC who have caught a strain of norovirus keeps on growing. As of this afternoon, around 200 students had been reported having the virus. That's 80 more than last night when the university sent out an alert to the campus. However, officials are saying it appears the trend has peaked and the number of students seeking medical aid have declined, according to the LA Times.
