WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. death toll from fungal meningitis linked to potentially contaminated steroid injections has risen by two to 23, with North Carolina reporting its first death, health officials said on Saturday.

Tennessee's death total in the outbreak rose to eight, the highest state total, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said on its website.

States reported 13 new cases of fungal meningitis, raising the total to 281. There are also three peripheral infections caused by injections into joints.

The outbreak stems from medications shipped by the New England Compounding Center (NECC) in Massachusetts. The company faces federal and state investigations and lawsuits over the tainted medications.

After reading Cohen's briefing and from all of the other reading on this subject, it makes one wonder if this deadly virus was placed in the meds intentionally.

This outbreak is a scary thing! Can't we even go to the doctor anymore and be safely treated? You can forget my steroid shot. Who is to say it won't start happening with other companies.
You never know tHESE days.

This is sO sad. Lives have been lost and so many more could be at risk . My prayers are with the families.

3 more deaths from meningitis outbreak linked to injections

"Two of the new deaths were in Michigan, which now has reported seven fatalities, and one in Tennessee which has confirmed 11 deaths, the CDC said. The two states have been the hardest hit by the outbreak, first discovered in Tennessee late last month."

TN here . And aren't some of you guys in Michigan? !!
This company also has other medications . I just hope that the Morphine (etc!) wasn't tainted -as much as it is given in the hospitals.

Signs and symptoms of fungal meningitis may include the following:

Fever
Headache
Stiff neck
Nausea and vomiting
Photophobia (sensitivity to light)
Altered mental status

Just be alert to these symptoms, all , IF you think you may be at risk.

Appreciate the prayers for my sister If any of you read & did so. To let you know , she is doing somewhat better - thankfully, her prob is NOT the fungal meningitis ! Too, prayers are ALWAYS much appreciated: I thank you from the depths of my heart!

Keep alert , safe and well , my friends!
