CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The head of the state Bureau for Public Health says one West Virginia clinic received a steroid medication suspected in an outbreak of a rare form of meningitis.
Dr. Marian Swinker didn't immediately identify the clinic Thursday.
Swinker said her office's epidemiology staff is closely monitoring the situation with the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. She says the CDC has contacted the clinic and that patients who may have received the medication are being contacted.
Swinker said West Virginia has no reported cases from the outbreak in five other states that has sickened at least 26 people, including four deaths. The drug was made by a specialty pharmacy in Massachusetts that issued a recall last week and has shut down operations.
