BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - State health officials say an additional case has been linked to a hepatitis C outbreak in Minot, bringing the total to 47.

Forty-five of the cases have been in former or current residents of the ManorCare nursing home. The Health Department says the last two cases are in residents of Somerset Court, but that all of the cases appear linked to blood or foot care services.

Hepatitis C is a viral infection that can cause serious liver damage or even death.
