Officials at a North Carolina university say approximately 100 students have been diagnosed and treated for swine flu.

Wake Forest University spokesman Kevin Cox said Tuesday that classes are continuing as usual and that students who are not feeling well are being advised to tell their professors that they are sick and to stay home.

Cox says two cases of swine flu were confirmed last Friday. He says the cases have been relatively mild and the students are feeling better after a few days. Some students were treated at the university's health service, and Cox said there have been no extraordinary cases.

Doctors say most cases run their course naturally. Medical care is recommended if body temperature reaches 103 or higher, if there is vomiting, a rash or a change in behavior.
