This is just awful.

It was just the other day that we mentioned that the fungal meningitis outbreak had spread to its 19th state and made 347 people sick.

It's still continued steadily getting worse, with the death toll rising to 28!

The number of people sick with meningitis is now 356.

The only way to fight the sickness is with anti-fungal drugs, but they don't seem to be as effective as giving someone with an infection a dose of antibiotics.

So sadly, we wouldn't be surprised if the death toll continues to rise.

This is just awful and we really hope the rest of those who are sick get well soon!
