Singapore : Fewer cases of severe dengue fever

Via Straits Times, excerpt : 

" Although more dengue cases are being diagnosed, the good news is that only a small number of people have come down with a more severe form of the disease.

As of Monday, 9,429 people had fallen victim to the dengue virus. But only 38, or 0.4 per cent, of them developed the more serious dengue haemorrhagic fever.
This is a marked decline from the 2005 dengue outbreak, which recorded almost 14,000 infections, 2.8 per cent of which were dengue haemorrhagic fever cases."
