9th Child Dies Following Viral Outbreak At New Jersey Rehabilitation Facility

Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation

According to health officials, the child had a confirmed case of adenovirus and became ill before October 22.

A ninth child has died in a New Jersey rehabilitation facility that is now suffering an adenovirus outbreak, according to officials.

There have been 25 confirmed pediatric adenovirus cases at Wanaque, including the eight child deaths.

Health officials found minor hand-washing deficiencies at the facility during visits last week, and have been working with the center on infection-control issues, the health department said. Those with weakened immune systems, though, have a higher risk for severe disease and may remain infectious long after they recover, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says. Many will never walk or talk, and some have spent virtually their whole lives there, according to the paper.

USA economy grows 3.5% in 3Q as consumers, government spending boosts GDP
As the chart below shows, the Congressional Budget Office estimated the USA economy would grow 3.3 percent this year. Those exports dropped in the third quarter and could continue to drop if the tariffs remain in place.

"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.

The outbreak, caused by adenovirus type 7, "is affecting medically fragile children with severely compromised immune systems".

The viruses are known to persist on unclean surfaces and medical instruments, and may not be eliminated by common disinfectants, but they rarely cause severe illness in healthy people.

The outbreak will not be declared over until the centre can go four weeks without patients being newly infected.

He told BBC Radio Leicester: "The engine stopped and I turned round and it made a bit of a whirring noise, like a grinding noise". Since news of her death has emerged, her social media accounts have been inundated with tributes and messages of condolence.

Health Department spokeswoman Donna Leusner said Thursday the person had already been ill so the diagnosis does not necessarily mean the virus is still spreading.

The department is continuing to investigate the outbreak.

Hospitals in more than 30 countries around the world are detaining patients who can't pay their bills, according to an investigation by the Associated Press.

Both the staff at the facility as well as state authorities are continuous in the efforts to contain the spread of the virus.
