Officials say 18 cases of adenovirus at the Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Haskell, Passaic County was confirmed.

The health department had earlier confirmed 18 cases of the virus.

Adenovirus is a family of viruses that typically impact young children and usually cause only mild illness, according to the Health Department.

Kirgan added: 'The combination of a worse strain of adenovirus together with a fragile population has led to a more severe outbreak'.

"The strain has been particularly associated with disease in communal living arrangements and can be more severe", health officials said.

A Department team is at the facility today and an inspection team was also there Sunday. A team was sent back Tuesday.

Nicole Kirgan, a spokeswoman for the health department, told Daily Mail Online in a statement that the outbreak was caused by adenovirus type 7.

"I am heartbroken by the news that several children have lost their lives in an adenovirus outbreak at the Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation, and pray for the full recovery of the other children impacted", Murphy said. For example in 1997, an outbreak of adenovirus 7 at a U.S. Navy training center sickened more than 350 people, according to a 2002 report.

Some strains of adenovirus can cause the common cold, sore throat, while other, more serious issues, can cause bladder or stomach inflammation.

Inspectors from the Department of Health have visited the center and are providing infection control and cleaning procedures.

The facility's pediatrics center serves newborns to 22-year-olds who are "medically fragile" and provides an individualized program for each child, the center's website said.
