Australia : Woman, 66, dies from meningococcal disease at Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital

Via Adelaide Now :

" A 66-year-old south-east Queensland woman has died from meningococcal disease in a Brisbane hospital.

The Hervey Bay woman died yesterday after more than two weeks in the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital's intensive care unit, Queensland Health said today.

Antibiotics have been given to her close contacts.

Last month a four-year-old girl died from meningococcal disease in Hervey Bay, but Queensland Health's public health physician Margaret Young said there was no "outbreak"."
