Health officials are now calling the three meningococcal cases in Central Oregon a small cluster and not a community outbreak. Crook County Communicable Disease Coordinator Karen Yeargain says the three people did not spread the disease among themselves, rather the conditions were right in each case for the disease to take hold. “These people were probably just caught in the right conditions at the right time, if you will, a perfect storm. Rather than have a broad community risk. We don't have a broad tidal wave hitting the community.”   Final test results are pending in the death of a Deschutes County infant. Yeargain says the infant's small size and the rapid spread of meningococcal inside a patient's body were undoubtedly factors in the death. She says health officials have treated everyone around these three patients and are confident it will not spread.
