    A University of Maryland student recently died of the same type of virus that killed 11 children at a medical center in New Jersey.

    At least five other cases of the illness have been reported at UMD. School officials say they learned on November 19 that one specimen they sent to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was confirmed to be Adenovirus 7, a strain that can cause more severe illness...

              December 21 at 8:21 PM

              The virus arrived with little warning. It would pop up in a dormitory. Then it would beset students living off campus.

              As University of Maryland students embark on their winter break, disease trackers have found no obvious ties among the people who fell ill from adenovirus during the fall semester. University officials said 40 students have tested positive, including one who died of an illness associated with the disease.

              ?There hasn?t been much in the way of commonalities that we?ve been able to detect," University Health Center director David McBride said. ?We?ve looked at where the students who are sick live, what organizations they?re in, whether their roommates are sick. There really is not a consistent pattern coming through.?

              Now, they are scouring dorms, offering health warnings and providing online updates...
