Dengue Fever

The dengue fever 'epidemic' seems to die off after previous weeks of high incidences.

Though NEA (National Environment Agency) has taken a proactive lead in carrying out an 'Intensive Source Reduction Exercise' mainly on homes over Singapore in the past two months, the number of dengue cases is on the steady rise over these months, going down only in the past two weeks.

The discovery of a canal in Pasir Ris where 600 larvae were found soon propelled Pasir Ris into a super cluster.

Personally, I believe NEA should change tack in its fight against dengue. The dengue scourge is mainly out in the outdoors and not inside homes.
