Five more students at the American University in Cairo have contracted swine flu, said Egypt's health minister, bringing the total number of infected students at the school to seven. The five cases were discovered when tests were carried out at a dormitory after two students from the US were diagnosed with swine flu, Hatem el-Gabali told reporters Tuesday. He did not disclose the nationalities of the five new cases. The dorm, which the ministry said houses 234 people including 110 students from 10 different countries, has been under quarantine for seven days.
