Dengue up in Singapore with over 160 each week

Via Xinhua :

" SINGAPORE, Oct. 15 : Dengue cases are on the rise in Singapore again, with more than 160 a week coming down with it over the past three weeks -- the highest weekly numbers over the past 21 months.

One person died from it in July, local daily The Straits Times reported Friday.

One of the biggest outbreaks involves more than 90 people.

It occurred when dengue first struck workers at a construction site in the west, then spread to other workers living in dormitories over in the east, then to households in that area.

More cases were reported Thursday."
