Ninth child dies in New Jersey facility suffering viral outbreak

Ninth child dies in New Jersey facility suffering viral outbreak

On Oct. 27, the New Jersey Department of Health announced the eight death associated with the ongoing adenovirus outbreak at a rehabilitation center in New Jersey, though authorities are still waiting for the laboratory results to confirm whether adenovirus was or was not present in the child who recently passed away.

"The facility has agreed to cease new admissions for the duration of the outbreak", the department said.

It is the latest death of an individual who had a confirmed case of adenovirus and had become ill before October 22.

Teams will also be sent to the Voorhees Pediatric Facility in the state, and the Children's Specialised Hospital with locations in Toms River and Mountainside.

The child died at the Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Passaic County late Saturday.

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

Health officials found minor hand-washing deficiencies at the facility during visits last week, and have been working with the center on infection-control issues, the health department said.

The teen - who has been a longterm care patient at the facility for four years - was apparently diagnosed with the virus several days before the NJ Health Department was notified of the outbreak, the WABC article says. The children range in age from toddlers to young adults. But officials say this outbreak is particularly severe because it's affecting medically fragile children with severely compromised immune systems. And for most patients, only home remedies and over-the-counter medicines to relieve symptoms are needed. The CDC is also investigating the outbreak.

This strain of adenovirus has been associated with communal living.

"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. Adenoviruses usually just cause mild illnesses. Some strains also cause diarrhea and pinkeye.

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.

From 2003 through 2016, the two most commonly reported adenovirus types in the United States were types 2 and 3, though four additional types - 1, 4, 7 and 14 - also caused illness, according to a 2017 report from the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Disease of the CDC.
