Nineteen Princeton University Students Diagnosed with Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease

mccoshAs of today, 19 students at Princeton University have been seen at the school’s health center for hand, foot and mouth disease, a school spokesman said.

“University Health Services staff have advised the students affected to take precautions to avoid the spread of the disease,” Princeton University Spokesman Martin Mbugua said. “Additionally, building services staff have been doing extra cleaning in common access areas in all residence halls.”

Hand, foot and mouth disease, a viral illness, can cause painful sores inside the mouth, and skin rashes on hands or feet, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention website. The disease most commonly affects children under the age of five. Some adults who are affected have no symptoms. The disease can be passed on through close contact, coughing, or sneezing. In rare instances, extreme cases of  the disease can lead to viral meningitis.

    I’m also a big fan of owning my own home. Perhaps if you spent less time making foolish comments and more time working, you could aspire to the same one day. Lowly indeed.

    You are a big fan of repeating the same hack comment.

    Maybe the campus cops can enforce a quarantine with their new rifles.
