LANSING (WKZO) -- Michigan Department of Community Health officials say another state resident has died from fungal meningitis.

The latest was a 73-year-old male from Grand Traverse County.  That brings the total in Michigan to 16-deaths from contaminated steroid injections and a total of 244 known infections.

The New England lab responsible has closed down and declared bankruptcy.  Michigan has been hit harder by the outbreak than any other state.
