In the United States have died, six children in a clinic of an infection with adenovirus. Twelve more are ill. The Ministry of health of the US informed of the state of New Jersey. The affected hospital, the Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation, should not be taking any new patients until the outbreak was not over.

adenoviruses in most cases lead to respiratory diseases such as colds, Bronchitis or pneumonia, which heal in people with healthy immune systems normally again. Also, conjunctivitis, or diarrhea can be a result of infection, the pathogens are usually spread via the hands.

A delegation of the Ministry of health inspected the clinic and discovered “mild deficits in the hands cleaning” of the staff. The Team now wants to work for the infection control work closely with the hospital, said in a Statement.

“In this case, we have to do it with a wicked combination of very sick children, and by an aggressive Virus,” said William Schaffner, infectious disease Loge from the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville.

The six deaths occurred, all in October. The outbreak of the adenovirus strain 7 was triggered, apparently. Infection with this strain can extend to the Ministry of health, can be difficult.
