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 child who died Saturday was medically-fragile with a respiratory illness and had a confirmed case of adenovirus before October 22, the Health Department said.

There have been 25 total cases of the virus at the facility.

Health Commissioner Dr. Shereef Elnahal said the first symptoms showed up September 26, and the state was notified of an outbreak October 9.

"As part of an ongoing effort to ensure all infection control measures are followed, we are taking extra steps to monitor residents and staff for any signs of infectious illness", Elnahal said.
