Meningitis Outbreak Could Spread
NEW YORK (AP) - Health officials say a tainted steroid suspected of causing a meningitis outbreak has made its way to 75 clinics in 23 states, including South Carolina.
However, it's not clear how many people received the contaminated injections while being treated for back pain.
So far 35 people in six states have contracted fungal meningitis, and five of them have died.
Officials say the time from infection to onset of symptoms is anywhere from a few days to a month, so the number of people stricken could rise.
