A seventh child has died from an adenovirus outbreak in a health center in the state of New Jersey, officials said Wednesday.

Elnahal said his inspection team "on Sunday found minor hand washing deficiencies" at the Wanaque Center, "and the Health Department is continuing to work closely with the facility on infection control issues".

Wednesday's statement came a day after New Jersey health officials announced that an outbreak at the Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in the community of Haskell had killed six children in recent days.

Seven people, ranging in age from toddler to young adult, have died this month from the virus.

The identities of those who died and the affected patients have not been disclosed.

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

The strain afflicting the children is usually associated with acute respiratory illness, according to the CDC, which on its website instructs health workers to report unusual clusters to state or local health departments. It sometimes causes more serious respiratory illness, especially among those with weak immune systems.

Numerous children at the facility require ventilators for breathing, and some have spent all or most of their lives there, Dr. Elnahal said. "Because this one occurred in a place where the patients are so fragile and have underlying immune system problems, you're seeing the severity play out". The 2001 paper said civilian outbreaks of the type 7 infection had not been frequently reported because of a lack of lab resources, and that the full impact on chronic-care facilities and hospitals is likely underestimated.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been notified, the Wanaque Center said in a statement emailed by its administrator Rowena Bautista.

The number is being shared with families, but not the public.

Kristine Poulos told WABC-TV that she had been notified of her daughter contracting adenovirus about five days before state health officials were alerted on October 9, and that she wondered why they couldn't have reported it sooner.

Poulos told ABC News 7 that she questions the facility's timeline of events.
