VOORHEES, N.J. – Health officials say they have identified two new cases of children infected with adenovirus at a New Jersey pediatric health care facility.

The Voorhees Pediatric Facility near Philadelphia tells WPVI TV Friday that brings the total number of infected patients to 12. Facility officials say there have been no related deaths and none of the patients are in critical condition.

At least 10 people died earlier this year after an outbreak of a different strain of adenovirus at Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in New Jersey. Haskell, about 1

00 miles (161 miles) away. Der har været 28 tilfælde forbundet med det respiratoriske virus på det center, hvor de berørte børn havde alvorligt kompromitterede immunsystem. One death was a young adult.

Officials have said there is no wider public health concern.
