The Westchester mother of a 16-year-old girl who was among seven dead in an adenovirus outbreak at the Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in North Jersey is demanding answers, ABC7 reports. The seventh death was announced the next day.

"To date, confirmed cases became ill between September 26 and October 22", according to a health department statement.

This latest death was a confirmed case of adenovirus, according to the New Jersey Department of Health.

The state Department of Health Communicable Disease Service has been on site monitoring the outbreak. They ranged in age "from a toddler through young adults, but most are under 18".

They will deploy to University Hospital in Newark; the Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Haskell; the Voorhees Pediatric Facility, and the Children's Specialized Hospital, with locations in Toms River and Mountainside. And for most patients, only home remedies and over-the-counter medicines to relieve symptoms are needed.

The department is continuing to investigate the outbreak.

In rare cases among people with weakened immune systems, the viruses may cause pneumonia or inflammation of the brain and the tissues around it.
