New Jersey Adenovirus Outbreak Claims 10th Child

Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Haskell New Jersey

To date, the individuals associated with the outbreak became ill between September 26 and October 29.

Adenoviruses can cause a wide range of illnesses, including the common cold, sore throat, bronchitis, pneumonia, diarrhea, pink eye, fever, bladder infection, inflammation of the stomach or neurologic diseases.

Meanwhile, a second outbreak, confirmed to be a milder form of adenovirus - has infected four children at the Voorhees Pediatric Center in Camden County, officials said.

The child was a resident at Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Haskell and contracted adenovirus 7 before October 22, New Jersey Health Department officials said in a news release.

While the age of the 10th child who died was not given, the ages of the first nine patients who succumbed to the virus ranged from toddler to young adults, majority under 18. But it can be serious in people with weakened immune systems, like those at the centre.

There have been 28 cases associated with the respiratory virus at the center, where the affected children had severely compromised immune systems.

Preliminary tests have ruled out the strain linked to the 10 deaths at the Wanaque facility.

North Korea threatens US: Return to nuke buildup possible
Moon has previously said that Kim told him he would visit Seoul within this year when the leaders met in Pyongyang in September. The agency also had soil collected from North Korea's nuclear test site in Punggyeri, right after its explosion, for analysis.

Officials have ordered the facility to stop admitting new patients until the outbreak ends.

New Jersey health officials report a 10 medically fragile child confirmed to have the adenovirus infection has passed away.

Officials have said there is not a wider public health concern stemming from the outbreak.

"The vast majority are under age 18".

The outbreak appears to be confined to the facility's respiratory unit, he added. "But we are working with the CDC on this ongoing outbreak investigation".

The strain found in the Wanaque rehab center outbreak is called type 7 and is among the more potent types.

The department says 27 cases have been associated with the respiratory virus at the centre. The state Department of Health has revealed few details on the patients, citing privacy laws.
