Dengue warning as cases increases

The issue discussed here is that the warmer months here which is in June and October have increased the growth of mosquitoes as it accerlates breeding and maturation cycles of the Ades mosquitoes. There are 272 cases in this week which is the most cases in the year and this raises awareness about Ades mosquitoes. NEA also encourage residents to allow NEA officers to conduct indoor spraying to reduce the breed of mosquitoes. 

The author did not express any opinions but the NEA have warned Singaporeans to be on guard against dengue and work with NEA together to prevent the growth of Ades mosquitoes. I know that the warmer months will encourage Ades mosquitoes to "attack" us so we must also do our part to keep ourselves safe from dengue. Some actions we can do is to clear all the stagnant water everyday and regularly change the water of fish tanks, etc. Dengue is really dangerous and can cause victims to be bedridden for up to 2 weeks.

  1. i agree that we should also play our part in protecting ourselves from dengue. it is not only the job of the environmental society or medical study to be on the guard from dengue because everyone is at the risk of this disease.
