The deadly outbreak of fungal meningitis continues to spread.

The Centers for Disease Control is reporting new cases every day.

There are more than a dozen new cases in Texas, including another death.

And there could still be people across the country who don't know they've been infected.

105 people in nine states are infected. Eight people are dead.

The outbreak is linked to steroid injections used for neck and back pain relief.

Physicians are still contacting those who may have been exposed.
