Outbreak Continues To Grow
We now know that both hospitals in La Crosse did not purchase products
from a company that has led to a meningitis outbreak. Gunderson Lutheran verified that with us Thursday and Mayo Clinic Health Systems says the same thing today.
Mayo says they have gone through all of their pharmecutical supplies and notes that the steroid in question is not used at the health system. Also, no cases of meningitis have reported in La Crosse.
The number of people infected with meningitis has risen for the fifth consecutive day......170 cases....14 dead....in 11 states.
