The real estate alone is worth enough to help the families. The building will probably have to be demolished. I doubt there is any technology available to remove the contamination from it.
Aspergillus--7 µm diameter (click here)
There is another fungus involved, but, Aspergillus alone is so tiny it will be in every crack in the wall. That is seven micrometers.
μm = micrometer(s) (1 μm =10-6 m) NOT micron or μ (click here)
In mathematical numeration 10^-6 m is 0.000001 meters (click here). That is really, really tiny. There is no way anything but complete fumigation (gas) of the building will work and it is very difficult to be sure all the fungus is destroyed.
It would be best if Governor Patrick would begin to talk to the public about establishing a charity fund to help the families across the country. It could be a permanent fund with donations and fund raising to benefit any children through college as well. There just won't be enough money from the company itself to cover all the needs of those left behind from the death of their family members.
