Maryland health officials announced four new cases of Hepatitis C from Johns Hopkins Hospital. There also is one case from the Baltimore VA Medical Center, six cases in Kansas and one at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in Pennsylvania.

David Kwiatkowski is charged with stealing painkillers from a New Hampshire Hospital and replacing them with saline-filled syringes tainted with his own blood.

Thirty-two New Hampshire patients have tested for the same strain of the liver-destroying disease he carries. A dozen other cases have emerged in states where he previously worked. Kwiatkowski remains jailed in New Hampshire.
