Death Toll Rises As Fungal Meningitis Ravages The USA

The Center of Disease Control has located the source of the deadly fungal meningitis that killed 14 people to date and infected another 170. The fungus has been linked to a steroid shot produced by New England Compounding which had shipped the shots to 23 states.

The shots which have been recalled by New England Compounding have so far produced cases in Florida, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, and Idaho. New England Compounding has recalled all off their production line as a precautionary measure.

Symptoms of fungal meningitis can include dizziness, severe headache, fever, nausea, and neck pain. While this fungus is not contagious anyone showing symptoms should go to the hospital.
