Flu cases at Cornell
The 2009/10 academic year proved to be unusual in terms of influenza like illness. See the graph below for a retrospective on our flu experience.
NOTE: The graph reflects the number of patients who have been evaluated and diagnosed as having probable H1N1 influenza by Gannett. Cornell does not require students with flu to "report" their illness, so there is no way to know the total number of people who have had the flu at Cornell.
