Six More Infected with Hepitatis C from Exeter Hospital

New Hampshire health officials have confirmed six more cases of hepatitis C. This brings the total cases up 27 who tested positive for the same strain of the blood borne infection as patients at Exeter Hospital’s cardiac catheterization lab.
State officials suspect a worker’s misuse of drugs led to the outbreak.
Anyone who was treated at the lab since October 2010 has been asked to get tested, either at the hospital or at alternate sites in Hampton and Portsmouth.
