Indiana Meningitis Cases Now at 34 Health officials say they're more confident than ever about the cause of the fungal meningitis outbreak that continues to kill. ABC News reports as the death toll reaches 20, new evidence confirms the meningitis link to the New England Compounding Center, the Massachusetts lab where the steroid injections were mixed. The FDA says an unopened vial of the drug contains the same fungus found in more than 250 infected patients in 16 states. In Indiana, Media Relations Coordinator with the Indiana State Department of Health, Ken Severson, says at last check there are 34 confirmed cases, up 2 from Wednesday, with just two deaths.
