Dengue Cases Increase Sharply in Singapore This Year

Singapore has identified more than 2,400 dengue fever cases since the beginning of this year, up four times over the same period last year, according to Channel News Asia report on Monday night.
Having warned earlier this year that the number of dengue cases would rise in Singapore, the National Environment Agency (NEA) attributed the outbreak to the high temperature, which speeds up larvae development.

NEA insists on preventing the Aedes mosquito from breeding as the most effective measure to put off dengue, which claimed the life of a 10-year-old boy in Singapore in January this year.

The agency will launch an advertising campaign on Wednesday as its latest effort to spread the prevention message after its Mozzie Attack program and the guides for checking water stagnation and mosquito breeding recently.
