COLUMBUS, Ohio - Health officials say a sixth meningitis case in Marion County gives Ohio a total of 11 illnesses linked to a larger outbreak and recalled steroid injections for back pain.
The Ohio Department of Health also has reported single cases of rare fungal meningitis in Crawford, Franklin, Hamilton, Morrow and Warren counties. The cases involve adults, and none have died.
Federal officials report more than 280 illnesses and at least 23 deaths in the outbreak linked to a specialty pharmacy in Massachusetts called the New England Compounding Center. The pharmacy has recalled its products.
Officials say 64 facilities in Ohio received products from the pharmacy. Four clinics in Ohio received the potentially contaminated steroids, and the patients that got those injections have been warned to watch for symptoms.
