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. New diagnoses bring the total number of cases to 25.
A staff member at the facility also fell ill during the outbreak, but has since recovered.
Adenovirus hasn't been confirmed in another person who died Friday afternoon.
