CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Officials report more cases in the meningitis outbreak.

There are nine new cases, bringing the total to 386 in 19 states.

But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has dropped the number of deaths from 29 to 28.

A death that had been reported in Virginia turned out to be a mistake.

Health officials say the meningitis came from steroid medications supplied by the New England Compounding Center of Framingham, Massachusetts.
