Four Cumberland athletes recovering from viral meningitis

Posted: Updated:
LEBANON, TN (WSMV) -

Four Cumberland University students are recovering after being diagnosed with viral meningitis.

University leaders said all four were male student athletes, but they did not live together.

They were all admitted to the hospital this week when the symptoms first showed.

Fortunately they all have viral meningitis instead of bacterial meningitis, which is more difficult to treat.
