Singapore : Largest cluster of dengue cases at Tai Keng Gardens

Via Channel News Asia :

" The largest cluster of dengue cases at the moment is at Tai Keng Gardens, near Upper Paya Lebar Road, with 46 cases.

The National Environment Agency (NEA) is working with grassroots leaders in the area to tackle the problem.

Grassroots leaders are going from door-to-door to educate residents on how to guard against the Aedes mosquitoes.

At the same time, NEA officers are going all out to quash any possible mosquito breeding areas.

Channel NewsAsia understands that the number of dengue cases in Tai Keng Gardens was low in the last three years, with fewer than 10 cases per year.

But there has been two dengue clusters since late last month, according to NEA data.

The first one emerged late last month in the area of Paya Lebar Crescent and Lorong Ah Soo.

The second one appeared this month in Jalan Kelichap, Upper Paya Lebar Road and Jalan Lokam."
