Mumps outbreak up to 56 reported cases

Email

Some 56 cases of mumps have been reported in Ohio in an outbreak that started at Ohio State University in Columbus but has spread to people without ties to the school — a “disturbing development,” say public health officials.

Forty of those infected are Ohio State students, staff members or people with close ties to the school’s campus, but the most recent cases have no connection to the university, said Jose Rodriguez, a spokesman for the Columbus health department.
