Harford Co. Woman Discusses Her Ordeal With Fungal Meningitis Linked To Tainted Steroid Injection

The nationwide menigitis outbreak linked to one Massachusetts pharmacy is quietly growing even more deadly. Four more people have died in the last week and 50 new cases have been reported.
As more people die from getting tainted steroid shots, a Maryland woman reveals her panic when she kept getting sicker and no one knew why. She tells Mary Bubala she went in for a shot and walked out with meningitis.
A simple step to relieve back pain– a steroid shot—became a death sentence for two dozen people across the nation as hundreds of others found out fungal meningitis is making them sick, including 34-year-old Patricia Pugh of Harford County.
