Md., Va. report more cases of meningitis
Question of the Day
Maryland and Virginia have both reported more cases of meningitis in a nationwide outbreak thought to be caused by steroid shots that may have been contaminated with a potentially deadly fungus.
Virginia is reporting 24 cases of suspected meningitis among nearly 700 back pain patients who received the steroid shots.
Public health officials said Tuesday 689 people received back pain shots at two clinics – one in Roanoke, the other in Christiansburg. Officials are still attempting to reach out to everyone who received the possibly tainted shots.
Of the 24 suspected cases reported so far, one person has died. Three of the 24 are West Virginia residents who received the pain treatment in Virginia. The state reported five suspected cases last week.
Maryland health officials say three more residents have developed meningitis after receiving a steroid injection, bringing the total people who became ill in the state to eight. One person has died.
The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene announced Tuesday that it had confirmed three more cases.
About 105 cases have been reported throughout the country, including nine deaths.
