CMC patient who died was already infected with rare brain disease at time of surgery
The sterile neurosurgical instruments used during his surgery were tainted through contact with the patient's diseased brain and that is how eight other patients at CMC may have been exposed.
"Though we are not surprised by the test results, we are saddened by the toll this disease takes on families and our sympathies go out to all those affected," state Public Health Director Dr. José Montero said in a statement.
