TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey health officials say they’ve confirmed four more infected patients in a viral outbreak at a pediatric rehabilitation center that killed seven people.
The outbreak won’t be declared over until the center can go four weeks without new cases of people being infected with a germ called adenovirus 7.
The seven who died this month were children and at least one young adult. They were all in a respiratory unit where patients receive long-term help with breathing.
Adenovirus usually poses little risk for healthy people.
