The first death from fungal meningitis in Florida has been reported by state health officials.
The Florida Department of Health said a 70-year-old man died in July, prior to the discovery of contaminated medication believed by officials to have been the source of the outbreak.
Health experts and private clinic workers continue to man the phones, trying to contact hundreds of Floridians may have been exposed to contaminated medicines that have caused a nationwide outbreak of fungal meningitis.
The drugs were used in spinal injections for back pain, according to state health workers.
Doctor Carina Blackmore, at the Florida Department of Health, said four people in Marion County have come down with fungal meningitis from the tainted steroids and hundreds more have yet to be contacted.
"We are in the process of gathering people to help reach out to everyone who has received injections from these three tainted lots," she said.
The contaminated meds were deliver to eight facilities in Florida, but two of the clinics say they didn't use the stuff.
There have been at least 105 cases of the disease in nine different states.
