InterveneMD physician speaks about meningitis outbreak

Posted: Updated:

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) – Health officials say a nationwide fungal meningitis outbreak has made more than 100 people sick and killed 11 people so far. 

No cases have been reported in South Carolina. 

The outbreak is believed to be caused by steroid injections designed to ease back pain. 

Officials say the outbreak is suspected to have come from medications manufactured in a compounding pharmacy in Massachusetts.

InterveneMD is one of those clinics that may have received the tainted medications.  

Tuesday, Dr. Todd Joye from InterveneMD joined ABC News 4 in the studio to clear up any questions viewers might have about the outbreak.
