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.

According to the health department, a total of 25 pediatric cases have been associated with the adenovirus outbreak. Adenovirus hasn't been confirmed in another person who died Friday afternoon. A staff member at the facility also became ill, but has since recovered.

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

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.

Adenoviruses, of which there are 52 different strains, are common causes of respiratory illnesses and most infections aren't severe, according to the CDC.

Adenovirus is a respiratory virus that can cause mild or serious illness, though serious illness is less common.

The nine children who died in the outbreak that began September 26 range in age from toddler to young adult, with majority under age 18.

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.

At the hospital, the state health department earlier said it found four Acinetobacter baumannii cases since October 1.

In a statement, the facility said it "promptly notified all appropriate government agencies when the virus was initially identified".

Rowena Bautista, the administrator of the Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation, said Thursday in a statement the community "feels a tremendous sense of loss".

In addition, a premature baby died following the discovery of a bacterial infection at Newark's University Hospital this month, state health officials have said. The CDC is also investigating the outbreak.

Adenovirus is a respiratory disease with symptoms that may include a sore throat, pneumonia, diarrhea, pink eye, fever, and inflammation of the stomach and intestines.
