Ohio gets first case of meningitis in deadly outbreak

91 people have been infected in nine states, and at least seven people have died from the rare illness.


A 65-year-old man is the first Ohioan to be diagnosed in the meningitis outbreak that has killed seven and spread to nine states.


Health officials say they aren't releasing where the man lives to protect his identity.


The outbreak has been linked to steroid injection

from the New England Compounding Center, a Massachusetts pharmacy
that has now recalled all of its products.


The steroids were injected into people suffering from back pain from July through September.
