Toby Overdorf, who represents District 83, told Sun Sentinel partner WPEC-Ch. 12 news that the four people in Martin County who’ve died from hepatitis A were all over age 50 and none were from the so-called “at-risk populations,” such as intravenous drug users, prisoners and homosexuals. “There is something that’s going on that is causing these deaths," he said...
