Weekly dengue cases in Singapore jump to a new three-year high


The National Environment Agency (NEA) said in an update on their website, that the weekly numbers of the potentially deadly mosquito-borne condition have more than quadrupled in the past three months. As of 17 June, the number of active dengue clusters across the island had more than doubled from a month earlier to 112. On 30 May, Singapore saw its fourth dengue death in 2019, when a 63-year-old man died from the disease. NEA said the population of the Aedes aegypti mosquito, which carries the dengue infection, is persistently high and this increases the risk of transmission of dengue virus. In total, there are 31 high risk dengue clusters, including housing estates at Woodlands Avenue 6, Chai Chee Avenue, Aljunied Road and Jurong East Avenue 1.  Click here to read more.
