fungal meningitis outbreak
Here is an update on the fungal meningitis outbreak that has killed at least 31 people across the country and sickened hundreds more. Orlando personal injury attorney James O. Cunningham has been following developments in this case very closely, as at least two Floridians have died from contaminated steroids and at least seven more have contracted the illness. Around 1,000 Floridians who received the contaminated steroids at clinics around our state are at risk for developing this potentially deadly disease. The tainted samples of methylprednisolone acetate, a steroid often prescribed for pain relief, came from the New England Compounding Center in Massachusetts, and all vials of the drug have been recalled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
