9th death reported at pediatric center amid viral outbreak

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

Seven other children have died and 16 others who have survived all contracted adenovirus while being treated at the Wanaque Nursing Home & Rehabilitation Center in Haskell, according to the Department of Health.

The new diagnosis brings the total number of cases at the facility to 25. Twenty-five children have been sickened in the outbreak, as has one staff member at the facility.

The latest death occurred Friday when a child succumbed to adenovirus, according to officials.

The highly contagious adenovirus poses little to risk to healthy people.

The facility is still not admitting any new patients and won't until the outbreak is over. Some strains also cause diarrhea and pinkeye. The affected children in the facility's pediatric ventilator unit had severely compromised immune systems, including respiratory problems, before the outbreak began, according to the agency.

The teams will assess infection prevention practices and deploy beginning in November, according to Health Commissioner Dr. Shereef Elnahal.

Pittsburgh synagogue shooting: Suspect charged with murder
Bowers was taken to the Allegheny General Hospital after the shooting, where he is said to have been treated by a Jewish nurse. In a voice breaking with emotion, Sanders noted that Trump's daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren are Jewish.

The for-profit facility has a pediatric centre and also cares for elderly residents.

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

At the hospital, the state health department earlier said it found four Acinetobacter baumannii cases since October 1. The CDC is also investigating the outbreak. Adenoviruses usually just cause mild illnesses.

The bacterium can cause pneumonia or serious blood or wound infections.

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. They tend to be spread by coughing and sneezing, direct contact with an infected person, or touching objects and surfaces, such as door handles and light switches, where the viruses can live and remain infectious for days or weeks.

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