A Philadelphia college student who died of the same type of meningitis that caused an outbreak at Princeton University had been in close contact with Princeton students about a week before getting sick, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Last week, tests confirmed that Stephanie Ross, a Drexel University sophomore from Pittsburgh, died of the same type of meningitis that caused an outbreak at Princeton University in New Jersey, suggesting the strain might still exist on the Ivy League campus despite a massive vaccination effort.
