27th adenovirus case confirmed at pediatric rehab facility

2nd pediatric facility in New Jersey hit by viral outbreak

Health officials also say that there are four cases of adenovirus at a pediatric facility in Voorhees, but that the strains are different.

The child had been a resident of the Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Haskell.

"We are working closely with the facility to conduct respiratory illness surveillance and ensure all infection control protocols are continuously followed", New Jersey Health Commissioner Dr. Shereef Elnahal said.

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.

Those with weakened immune systems have a higher risk for the severe disease and may remain infectious long after they recover, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.

New Jersey health officials on October 31 confirmed four adenovirus cases at Voorhees (N.J.) Pediatric Facility.

The identities of those who died and the affected patients have not been disclosed. The outbreak involves a less-deadly viral strain than the one responsible for killing 10 and sickening 27 pediatric patients at Wanaque (N.J.) Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation, according to NJSpotlight.

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

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, a lot of them under 18. "Some have been hospitalized, and some are being cared for at this facility", Elnahal said. The outbreak was reported to authorities October 9, the state health department said.
