Officials were scrambling on October 5, 2012, to track down shipments of a steroid linked to outbreaks of deadly meningitis across the South. The steroid, commonly injected to treat various ailments, was contaminated with a fungus that causes a non-contagious but dangerous form of meningitis. Thirty-five people have contracted the virus so far, and five of them have died. The Massachusetts factory that produced the medications has shut down until further notice. The tainted drugs are known to have reached Tennessee, Virginia, Maryland, Florida, North Carolina and Indiana.
