MAP: Which States Are Affected By Meningitis Outbreak?
Word crossed our wires Friday afternoon that there are now four more confirmed cases in what's become a widespread outbreak in the U.S. of a rare form of meningitis. All four of the new cases are in the state of Tennessee, which has the most confirmed cases overall.
