ATLANTA – Another overdose has been reported that could be related to a cluster of fake Percocets that have already killed six people and put dozens into the hospital.

According to the Georgia Department of Public Health, the overdose was reported in middle Georgia on Sunday morning.

“There are reports of six additional overdose cases possibly related to fake Percocet,” the department said. “None of these cases have been confirmed as overdoses related to the street drugs.
