9th death reported at pediatric center amid viral outbreak

9th child dies in adenovirus outbreak at NJ health facility, Health Department confirms

Nine children have been reported dead at a New Jersey nursing home in the last week, at least eight from viruses that cause respiratory illness, the state health department said. Adenovirus hasn't been confirmed in another person who died Friday afternoon. It said it did not have laboratory confirmation of adenovirus in the child.

In some versions of a story October 25 about a viral outbreak, The Associated Press misspelled the name of the New Jersey health commissioner. The strain of adenovirus in the outbreak is linked to "communal living arrangements" and can be especially unsafe to people with weakened immune systems.

The Wanaque Center, about 32 miles (50 km) northwest of NY, serves newborns to 22-year-olds who are "medically fragile". The children range in age from toddlers to young adults.

"We are working every day to ensure all infection control protocols are continuously followed and closely monitoring the situation at the facility", he said.

They will deploy to University Hospital in Newark; the Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Haskell; the Voorhees Pediatric Facility, and the Children's Specialized Hospital, with locations in Toms River and Mountainside.

A ninth child has died at a New Jersey rehabilitation facility following a viral outbreak. That said, investigations on the outbreak are ongoing, and so are the measures to prevent the further spread of the virus. The infection spreads like the common cold and most patients recover after a brief illness.

Adenoviruses, of which there are 52 different strains, are common causes of respiratory illnesses and most infections aren't severe, according to the CDC. And while a vaccine exists, it's available only to military recruits.

"Wash your hands frequently and avoid touching your face", she previously told CNN.

The infections "usually occur sporadically - here a case, there a case - so outbreaks are pretty rare", Schaffner said.

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. New diagnoses bring the total number of cases to 25. They're awaiting test results. "But they're not almost as serious as influenza".
