LANSING (WKZO) -- The latest figures from the state Department of Community Health show that 224 people have been affected by the nation-wide outbreak meningitis linked to tainted steroid injections.  Of those, 10-people have died.  Three additional Michigan residents have died but they are being counted as Indiana cases because that is where they received the injections.
