CLASSES at Ratu Kadavulevu School have resumed but the Health Ministry is still trying to identify the cause of the diarrhoea outbreak that affected 29 students last week.
Ministry spokesman Shalvin Deo said classes resumed yesterday after the all-clear was given although they were still trying to determine the cause of the outbreak. The ministry's inspection earlier revealed that mud and debris entered the school's water system causing disruptions to the water supply.
The Water Authority of Fiji had said the diarrhoea outbreak was not a result of the contamination of the authority's water supply.
Authority spokeswoman Fulori Turaga said WAF provided water to the school that was treated and safe to drink. She said they were looking into other possible contributing factors such as dirty water tanks, holding containers and other sources which the students might have drunk from.
