There were 33 French exchange students at a New York school where 28 people were found to have swine-flu virus. Two French students and a teacher who presented flu-like symptoms were prescribed an antiviral drug and are thought not to be in danger.
Two French students and their teacher in an exchange programme in New York were declared out of danger of swine flu, said French consul Guy Yelda after a visit to St. Francis school.
The three presented flu-like symptoms, but were thought to be out of danger after having received Tamiflu, an antiviral drug.
The teenage students had been at the St. Francis school in Queens as part of an exchange program, Yelda said.
St Francis has the only cluster of swine-flu cases in New York and the most in the United Statees. The school is closed at least until Wednesday. Students are being told to keep away, as the city says there could be 100 cases there.
