A case where a first-year student who was infected by y-strain meningitis at St. Francis Xavier University was not made public when it happened. The student fell ill with the disease at the beginning of January, but has since been recovering in Ontario. He was infected by the same y-strain as the one that took the life of Grade 10 student Rylee Sears from Lower Sackville. Nova Scotia has already reached its yearly average of four meningitis cases a year.
