A hotel in the mountain resort of Sinaia was closed Sunday after 40 Romanian and foreign law students meeting for a conference caught swine flu, officials said. Health state secretary Adrian Streinu-Cercel said 40 people were hospitalized Sunday at the Matei Bals Institute for Infectious Diseases in Bucharest, suffering from medium to severe forms of the flu. Streinu-Cercel said the flu was spread by a Portuguese tourist at the hotel who refused to be hospitalized for two days after it was confirmed that she was carrying the illness. He gave no further details.
