Eighth child dies at New Jersey rehabilitation facility

This latest death was a confirmed case of adenovirus, according to the New Jersey Department of Health.

A staff member who had fallen ill has since recovered from this strain of adenovirus, but the medically fragile children are the ones most vulnerable to the virus.

An additional "medically fragile child" who had a confirmed case of adenovirus at the Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation died Saturday night, the state's health department said.

The teams will assess infection prevention practices and deploy beginning in November, according to Health Commissioner Dr. Shereef Elnahal. "We are working every day to ensure all infection control protocols are continuously followed and closely monitoring the situation at the facility". The outbreak won't be declared over until the center can go four weeks without patients being newly infected.

The illness, identified as adenovirus 7, poses the most significant risk to patients with weakened immune systems or existing respiratory and cardiac disease.

The most recent date of illness onset was October 22, and it is believed that those sickened became ill between September 26 and October 22.

Those affected range in age from toddlers to young adults, with the vast majority under the age of 18. The strain of adenovirus in the outbreak is linked to "communal living arrangements" and can be especially risky to people with weakened immune systems.

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

"Deeply saddened to report a 9th death from the Wanaque outbreak". "The strain has been particularly associated with disease in communal living arrangements and can be more severe".

"The Wanaque Center continues to fully cooperate with these agencies and has sought out their medical guidance with respect to the virus", the facility said.
