A Cornell University junior died Friday because of complications from the H1N1 flu virus, a Cornell Daily Sun story carried by UWire says. Warren Schor, a 20-year-old from Clinton Corners, N.Y., was an economics and management major.
Officials estimate that more than 400 Cornell students had been diagnosed with flulike symptoms. Inside Higher Ed reports that at least two college students in the United States have died from the flu this school year.
"We wish to convey our heartfelt condolences to [Schor's family] and to his many friends," Cornell President David Skorton said in a release on the university's Web site. "Please keep them in your thoughts in the following days."
