Ohio University Has A Second Probable Case of Bacterial Meningitis

Ohio University has identified another probable case of bacterial meningitis. This in addition to another case that was identified earlier this week.

If this set of cases is confirmed, that will bring the total number of bacterial meningitis cases to four this year for Ohio University. OU Dean of Students Ryan Lombardi says he is concerned about this most recent set of the disease, "it's certainly a concern of mine that if these two are confirmed that they would be the third and fourth cases, if they were to be so of bacterial meningitis this year."

Both OU students live on the East Green on campus. They are being treated a hospitals in Columbus.
