5 confirmed meningitis on Kentucky

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The meningitis outbreak is spreading with five cases reported in Kentucky.

A Kentucky judge has died and it is believed to be related to an outbreak linked to injections of steroids distributed by a Massachusetts pharmacy.

None of the tainted injections are believed to have been distributed to Kentucky, but other medications from the pharmacy in question were.

The five people from Kentucky were diagnosed with meningitis after receiving medical attention in Tennessee.

A state health official says Indiana now has eleven confirmed cases of meningitis, but no one has died.
