The child who died Saturday was medically-fragile with a respiratory illness and had a confirmed case of adenovirus before October 22, the Health Department said.

An eighth child's death on Friday afternoon was associated with the outbreak, Leusner said. New diagnoses bring the total number of cases to 25.

"The Department continues to work very closely with the facility to ensure that all infection control measures are being followed", the Wanaque facility said in a statement Wednesday. "Often people become ill for many reasons, especially these medically fragile children who had respiratory problems as part of their underlying medical conditions".

On Friday, an eighth child was confirmed dead following the viral outbreak, but officials say they do not now have laboratory confirmation of adenovirus in this child that's killed other pediatric patients at the facility. Many will never walk or talk, and some have spent virtually their whole lives there, according to the paper. An adult staff member also was infected, and that person has since recovered.

"Unfortunately, the particular strain of adenovirus (#7) in this outbreak is affecting medically fragile children with severely compromised immune systems", Kirgan said.

Adenovirus is a respiratory virus that can cause mild or serious illness, though serious illness is less common. "The strain has been particularly associated with disease in communal living arrangements and can be more severe", according to the health department.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is assisting with the outbreak at the facility, and the Department of Health Communicable Disease Service is on site as well.

In the same report, the New Jersey spokeswoman Nicole Kirgan said children are particularly at risk with this virus.

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".

The pediatric centre where a severe viral outbreak left seven young people dead says it's offering grief counselling and a round-the-clock hotline for those affected.

"People know patients are being held prisoner, but they probably think they have bigger battles in public health to fight, so they just have to let this go", Sophie Harman, a global health expert at Queen Mary University of London, said.
