BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WTHR) – IE Bloomington informs about the Mumps outbreak on campus.
So far there are 20 confirmed cases. Nine of these cases were related to the Brotherhood. After this connection was found, the university ran a clinic with these members and allies of the Brotherhood.
About half of the cases were students living in campus dormitories.
There are three students who are still in isolation and the rest have been released.
Two of the students are international students and all have been vaccinated against the mumps. Sixteen of the cases concerned students who had received two doses of MMR vaccine. Experts at the press conference say that despite the two doses of the MMR vaccine, they are still only 88 percent effective.
Indiana University works with students and professors to help students pass classes or assignments.
IU also works with the Centers for Disease Control by sending emails to any student who may have come into contact with the virus.
