Dr. Blossom Anglin-Brown, Director of Health Services at the UWI has disclosed that the number of confirmed cases remained at three.

She said the UWI is trying to determine how the virus was spread as only one of the three infected students had travelled outside the country.

According to the university health official, so far 105 students have so presented with flu like symptoms.

Health authorities are now trying contain the spread and to educate our community about the virus. We have also cancelled all social events and some orientation activities as these involve a large number of students.
