Viral outbreak kills 6 children at NJ facility

A severe viral outbreak at a New Jersey pediatric hospital has left six children dead and 12 others infected, the state's Department of Health said Tuesday. Health officials are working with the center on infection control issues.

The Passaic County facility has been instructed to not admit any new patients until the outbreak ends.

Adenoviruses frequently cause mild illness, with cold-like symptoms, particularly in young children.

The statement said the health department sent a team to the facility to inspect on Sunday, and again on Tuesday, and that they found minor handwashing deficiencies.

Gov. Phil Murphy said in a statement that he was "heartbroken" about the deaths and that he had been briefed by the health commissioner, Dr. Shereef Elnahal, who told him that the department is on site and trying to prevent the virus from spreading further.

The facility notified the state's health department of respiratory illnesses October 9.

The state investigation is ongoing.

This strain is associated with disease in communal living facilities, the officials said.
