BioMed student admitted to hospital with suspected Meningitis
The university said the risk of the disease spreading is low
A Biomedical and Life sciences student has been admitted into hospital with what appears to be the symptoms of meningitis, but this has not yet been confirmed.
The university have issued a statement and believe there is little risk of it spreading amongst other students as it is usually only contracted through incredibly close contact and it is rare that it is passed on between people.
The university said: “We do not believe there is any risk to other students but this is a reminder that it is important to be aware of the symptoms.
“Meningitis is only transmitted through very close contact and even among close family members the risk is one in a hundred.”
The Uni however urges that students are to know what to look for symptom wise so they can notice the basic symptoms which can include –
- A fever with vomiting and a severe headache
- Drowsiness and confusion
- Severe muscle pain and a stiff neck
- Sensitivity to light and a rash
