All nine were in the pediatric unit of the Wanaque Center for Nursing & Rehabilitation in Haskell, Passaic County. The department can not confirm that the death of an individual who died Friday afternoon was related to the outbreak, officials said.

On Oct. 27, the New Jersey Department of Health announced the eight death associated with the ongoing adenovirus outbreak at a rehabilitation center in New Jersey, though authorities are still waiting for the laboratory results to confirm whether adenovirus was or was not present in the child who recently passed away.

No new residents are being admitted for the duration of the outbreak, which won't be declared over until the center can go four weeks without any new cases.

Adenovirus usually poses little risk for healthy people.

The infection can cause other illnesses, including pneumonia, diarrhea and bronchitis, the department said.

Another child is dead as a result of an ongoing outbreak at the Wanaque Center For Nursing And Rehabilitation in New Jersey.

Though the top and bottom sides can not be seen, the company has stated that there is not going to be a 3.5mm audio jack present. Mobile Fun has also discovered that the phone will be available in three colours: Midnight Black, Mirror Black and Purple.

As of the announcement, the total number of confirmed adenovirus cases at the facility is at 23, with seven deaths confirmed to be linked to the outbreak. Most were children, though at least one was a young adult; state officials have revealed minimal details to protect patient privacy.

Adenovirus can cause bronchitis, pneumonia and pink eye, but is especially unsafe to those with already compromised immune systems. But officials say this outbreak is particularly severe because it's affecting medically fragile children with severely compromised immune systems.

A staff member at the facility also fell ill during the outbreak, but has since recovered.

The Health Department first learned of the outbreak October 9, and within four days, inspectors found a hand-washing deficiency.

The 227-bed, for-profit facility, which is closed to new patients, has a pediatric center and also cares for elderly residents.
