Concert cancelled after Swine scare

The University of Delaware canceled a concert featuring Young Jeezy and supporting act Drake scheduled for Thursday because 10 students on campus were  suspected of having the deadly swine flu.      
       The show was originally scheduled for 8 p.m. Thursday April 30th, but UD President Patrick T. Harker announced that the concert, as well as a speaking engagement with noted journalist Gwen Ifill would be canceled due to the suspected outbreak.

 While the Centers for Disease Control have not yet confirmed any swine flu diagnoses, I have no doubt that these suspected cases are causing a great deal of concern among the entire campus community,” University of Delaware President Patrick T. Harker said. “The University’s first priority is the health and well-being of our students and employees. Therefore, we are working closely with the Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH) to safeguard student, staff, and faculty health.

       The World Health Organization announced this week that the world is on the brink of a pandemic and raised the global threat level to phase 5, the last step before a pandemic.
       Students and fans who purchased tickets to see Young Jeezy and Drake can contact the University of Delaware box office for information of refunds.
