Adenovirus outbreak claims 9th child at New Jersey facility

Health commissioner Dr Shereef Elnahal said the first symptoms showed at the centre on 26 September, and the state was notified of an outbreak 9 October.

Her mother says she was not made aware of the outbreak until Monday, the day before her daughter died and nearly three weeks after she was admitted to St. Joseph's Medical Center, NorthJersey.com reports. The department can not confirm that the death of an individual who died Friday afternoon was related to the outbreak, officials said.

The facility has been told not to admit any new patients until the outbreak ends.

Those affected range in age from toddlers to young adults, with the vast majority under age 18.

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