Three heroin users may have been killed by anthrax from a contaminated batch of the drug.
Officials confirmed that a second person with the disease had died at Glasgow Royal Infirmary, and a third user who may have had the infection had also passed away.
A man with anthrax died last week at the Victoria Infirmary.
A fourth case has been confirmed in Lanarkshire.
