19th Death Reported In Michigan Linked To Steroids
State health officials say an 87-year-old Livingston County man is the 19th person from Michigan to die as a result of contaminated steroids supplied by a Massachusetts pharmaceutical company.
The Michigan Department of Community Health says at least 262 people have contracted illnesses including fungal meningitis that are part of a national disease outbreak.
The Michigan total includes three state residents treated in Indiana and listed in that state's count.
The state health department confirmed this week that the Livingston County man died on April 11. His name wasn't released.
