Trenton, NI. – New Jersey's Health Commissioner says it's possible the source of a viral infection that killed 11 children in a long-term care facility may never be known.
Dr. Serif Elahal Witness for a State Senate Legislative Committee Monday.
Al-Malin said that the Adenowirus who led to the dam in the Wanaque (WAHN-um-kye) Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Haskell could come from a guest.
Children in the facility are all serious underlying health conditions.
Elnahal said his staff found "infection control deficiencies" in the facility. He also said it took the facility almost a month to fully separate and affected patients due to lack of space.
Representatives of the facility were invited to Monday's hearing but did not attend.
