Singapore : Dengue cases expected to surpass 1,000 a week

Via Asia One :

" The number of dengue infections is rising at a faster rate and is expected to top 1,000 infections a week - possibly as soon as this week.

Minister for the Environment and Water Resources Vivian Balakrishnan said this is worrying because Singapore is just entering the dengue season, which usually runs from June to August.

So far this year, 9,544 people have fallen ill and two men have died from the disease."
