RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Duke University saw nearly as many coronavirus cases in one week as it did during the entire fall semester. The university’s online tracker shows a quadrupling of positive cases among students over the previous week. Top administrators blame fraternities for the surge amid reports of recruitment activities and off-campus parties. The campus will remain on lockdown through the end of this week. In-person classes have been moved online and off-campus students are urged to stay off campus. Those in residence halls or apartments must remain in their room unless they are performing essential activities.
