During a cabinet meeting, Florida governor Rick Scott mistakenly gave out the number of a phone sex line instead of the hotline for people to get information about a devastating fungal meningitis outbreak that has affected potentially over 13,000 people, reports

As previously reported by NewsOne, 75 clinics in 23 states,  administered preservative-free methylprednisolone acetate, provided by New England Compounding Center of Framingham, Mass., to patients suffering with joint and back pain. A fungus that causes bacterial meningitis was found to have contaminated sealed vials of the steroid, leading to a voluntary recall and the The Food and Drug Administration urging physicians not to use any products at all from the pharmacy.

The states suffering the most from this tragedy are primarily in the south, including Tennessee, Virginia, Maryland, Florida, North Carolina and Indiana. According to Yahoo,com, 138 people have contracted meningitis and 12 have died.

Governor Brown is aware of the severity of the issue, but mistakenly gave the phone sex hotline’s number out over the airwaves. He corrected himself about 20 minutes later after a caller into a radio station notified them of the error. When concerned people called the number they heard a message that said: “Hello boys, thank you for calling me on my anniversary.”

According to  the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 138 people have contracted meningitis and 12 have died.

To get information, the correct number is: 866-523-7339
