Five states (Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Texas) have already been reporting higher than normal flu incidences.

Three schools in Tennessee have already closed for the week because so many students and teachers are so sick!

So the whole hearing in front of Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Florida, chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee's Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations went like this:

Meningitis Outbreak: Things Getting WORSE!

Filed under: HealthMedicineSickScary!

We previously mentioned that the fungal meningitis outbreak is far from over… and sadly, that's been true.

The outbreak has now spread to 19 states and has made 347 people sick!

Rhode Island became the 19th state to report that the outbreak has affected someone.

This is getting ridiculous!

We've said it before but still, we're so thankful that it's not contagious.

Massachusetts health officials are moving to revoke the license of the New England Compounding Center who's contaminated medications started this whole outbreak.

We think something fundamental needs to change in the compounding pharmacy industry so that something like this never happens again.

Check out the video (above) to hear how the FDA is responding to this crisis.
