$200 K spent per day to fight Dengue

Today’s news reported that the government is spending $200,000 a day on its fight against the dengue scourge to stave off an epidemic should the current climb in dengue cases is to continue.

$200,000 per day will amount to $1 million in just five days. A large amount, some may point out; however this sum of money would be well-spent if it could avert a dengue epidemic that would cost many their lives.

The crux of the battle would be for those personnel combing the grounds to conduct their checks religiously and dutifully to wipe out all potential breeding grounds and breeding habitats; it is also critical that all Singaporeans can also cooperate by ensuring their premises are clean and free of stagnant water bodies.
