    Are any of the recent cases bus riders? If so, can we find out the routes/times? And is there any discussion about increasing ventilation on the buses?

      The ministry of health along with the ministry of transport are formulating a multi lateral think tank that will combine the talents of the ministry of Finance and trade unions along with other key stakeholders.
