The Enquirer reports:
A University of Cincinnati student in the College of Business has been diagnosed with bacterial meningitis.
Generally the city of Cincinnati sees between one and five cases a year, the Cincinnati Health Department said.
The unidentified student is from Warren County and does not live on campus. UC said it has notified students who may have been in contact with the affected student.
Bacterial meningitis is the more severe type of the infection. It can be treated with antibiotics but health officials say it’s important to catch it early. Symptoms can include high fever, headache, a stiff neck or nausea, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
