LANSING, MI  (WKZO) --     Michigan has experienced another death from that Fungal Meningitis outbreak. The latest victim was an 87-year-old woman from Washtenaw County.  State health Spokesperson Angela Minicuci says that brings the total to 14, including the 3 victims from Cass County who received their infected injections in Indiana. 

Minicuci says the Doctors at St. Joseph Mercy in Ann Arbor have been leaders in treating the fungal infection, which they initially feared might have a 50% death rate, but because of aggressive treatment, they have reduced that death rate to a much lower figure.
