An Outbreak of Meningococcal Disease in Florida Is Growing, the C.D.C. Says - The New York Times

An outbreak of meningococcal disease in Florida has caused at least 26 cases of the serious illness, an official from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Wednesday.

Seven of the cases have been fatal, said Sam Crowe, a C.D.C.

The disease remains rare but is serious and can cause death “literally overnight,” said Jill Roberts, a molecular epidemiologist at the University of South Florida.

Crowe said.

The state typically sees 20 to 25 cases of the disease annually; so far this year, 44 cases have already been reported in Florida, he said.

(Not all of those cases are linked to the current outbreak; a small cluster of unrelated cases occurred among college students in February and March, Dr. Crowe said, and there were other isolated cases.).

Many of the recent monkeypox cases have also been identified in men who have sex with men, but that disease, too, can affect anyone, regardless of sexual orientation.
