My granddaughter was just diagnosed with bacterial meningitis, three days after visiting a major medical center for a post-op check-up. Is this just the tip of the iceberg? Can you only get meningitis from a direct injection or can it be transferred from active cases to the general population prior to diagnosis?
It’s fungal, so unrelated to your granddaughter’s case. It’s not communicable, and most of the harm is in being directly injected into a part of the body the immune system doesn’t protect effectively, a “sealed space” of sorts.
