HOWELL, Mich. (AP) – A Livingston County man whose wife died in the national meningitis outbreak has good news: Tests show he doesn’t have the illness.
George Cary received pain injections and was treated at the same Brighton-area clinic as his late wife, Lilian Cary, who died Sept. 30. Cary had a spinal tap to check for meningitis more than a week ago. He told The Associated Press on Tuesday there’s no evidence of meningitis.
Fungal meningitis has been traced to contaminated steroids made by a Massachusetts pharmacy and sent to clinics across the country. At least four Michigan residents have died.
