Ninth child dies in New Jersey facility suffering viral outbreak

Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation

A ninth child has died at a New Jersey rehabilitation facility following a viral outbreak.

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.

State health officials said an inspection of the Wanaque Center last weekend found "handwashing deficiencies" and "infection control issues", according to a statement.

"To date, confirmed cases became ill between September 26 and October 22", according to a health department statement.

"This is a tragic situation, and our thoughts are with the families who are grieving right now", Health Commissioner Dr. Shereef Elnahal said.

The department confirmed 25 pediatric cases have been associated with the outbreak. "This is an active investigation of an outbreak of adenovirus so it is possible that lab tests will confirm additional cases".

The individuals associated with the outbreak became ill between September 26 and October 22, the Health Department said.

Adenovirus is a respiratory virus that can causes mild or serious illness.

Adenovirus is a respiratory disease with symptoms that may include a sore throat, pneumonia, diarrhea, pink eye, fever, and inflammation of the stomach and intestines.

The state health department has sent a team of investigators to the facility to determine the cause of the outbreak.

No new residents are being admitted for the duration of the outbreak, which won't be declared over until the center can go four weeks without any new cases. The CDC is also investigating the outbreak.
