On Friday, an eighth child was confirmed dead following the viral outbreak, but officials say they do not now have laboratory confirmation of adenovirus in this child that's killed other pediatric patients at the facility.

Seven other children have died and 16 others who have survived all contracted adenovirus while being treated at the Wanaque Nursing Home & Rehabilitation Center in Haskell, according to the Department of Health.
