If to go as per the wordings of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention then the 2012 fungal meningitis outbreak, which has infected 620 people in 19 states, has killed 39 of them could have been more worse.

Dr. Rachel Smith, who is positioned as an epidemic intelligence service officer at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that the way, cases were getting reported they definitely thought that more number of people will be infected.

Smith wrote about his views about fungal meningitis in the New England Journal of Medicine. He affirmed that though a great loss has have happened, he would like to credit the stop on the cases to quick inquiry and coordinated response.

The matter was such that everyone including doctors, nurses, public health agencies and federal agencies worked together. He said that the outbreak has not stopped and cases keep on getting reported, but there is a lot of difference now.

"We found a strong association between the age of the methylprednisolone vials and the rate of infection in one clinic", said authorities concerned while talking about a potential link. For now, it can be said that peak season of the viral outbreaks has passed.
