COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio has two more meningitis cases linked to recalled steroid injections and a deadly outbreak, bringing the state's total to three cases.
The Ohio Department of Health said Thursday that a 39-year-old Morrow County woman and 40-year-old Crawford County woman were sickened. Ohio's first case was a 65-year-old Hamilton County man.
Four clinics in Marion, Cincinnati and Dublin received the injections, which were used for back pain and made by the New England Compounding Center in Massachusetts.
The government says 170 people have been sickened in 11 states and 14 of them have died in the outbreak of rare fungal meningitis.
The state initially said 430 patients received the injections but revised that number to 422. All but a few have been warned to be alert for symptoms.
