  1. What make you all think that CCSS ain contaminated too? The chemicals and poor quality of work that is done during cleaning is causing this. Because this island is 14 miles wide sits in the ocean and constantly getting fresh air to pass through, question must be ask why the schools and government buildings are infested with such contaminated air? Yes it is the season of the year where the flu become more rampant but again what our Ministry of Health is doing about it .... Government is having work shop upon work shop and have only doctors heading many departments and yet a street man can decode these things. It is time the government waste tax payers $$$$ to pay academical and unable to deliver substance in return.
