State health officials have confirmed four more cases of hepatitis C as they continue to investigate an outbreak linked to Exeter Hospital’s cardiac catheterization lab. Altogether, 31 people have tested positive for the same strain of the disease since the investigation began in late May. State officials suspect that a worker’s misuse of drugs led to the outbreak.
