Ninth Child Dies in Virus Outbreak at NJ Center

Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation

Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation

Adenovirus hasn't been confirmed in another person who died Friday afternoon.

The state Department of Health Communicable Disease Service has been on site monitoring the outbreak. The most recent outbreak of the illness at the facility, about 32 miles (50 km) northwest of New York City, was October 22.

The timing of the deaths is not clear. The seventh death was announced the next day.

A team at the facility on Sunday found minor hand-washing deficiencies.

Similarly, the states' health department also ensures that it is working very closely with the facility to monitor the illness outbreak, and to ensure that all infection control measures are being followed. Among the 25 children sickened, nine have died, the Health Department said.

Those affected at the Wanaque center range in age from toddlers to young adults.

This strain of adenovirus has been associated with communal living.

In a statement, the facility said it "promptly notified all appropriate government agencies when the virus was initially identified".

Buddy Hield scored 22 points and made three free throws over the final 20 seconds to send Sacramento past Washington. Malcolm Brogdon scored 13 points, Brook Lopez added 11 and John Henson collected 12 rebounds for the Bucks.

Those cases are not related to the virus at the Wanaque center, the Health Department said.

This 1981 electron microscope image made available by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows a group of adenovirus virions. The Health Professionals and Allied Employees (HPAE) said the shortages may have led to "poor infection control practices".

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. Based on an inspection conducted in August, CMS reported that "it was determined that the facility failed to provide a clean and homelike physical environment for their residents". The infection spreads like the common cold and most patients recover after a brief illness.

Twenty-five pediatric cases of adenovirus have been connected to the outbreak at this facility, officials said.

"Facility outbreaks are not always preventable, but in response to what we have seen in Wanaque, we are taking aggressive steps to minimize the chance they occur among the most vulnerable patients in New Jersey", Elnahal said in a statement. Adenoviruses usually just cause mild illnesses. Type 7 is most commonly associated with acute respiratory disease, according to the CDC.

She described this family of viruses as "environmentally hardy".

Symptoms include a sore throat, bronchitis, pneumonia, fever, and neurologic disease. They're awaiting test results. He said this is changing, and for that reason, he believes the number of cases will rise.

"Am I angry? I think what it is I need to know information, I like facts", Poulous told WABC.
