Dengue clusters – inching towards the south west?

When two or more dengue cases occur within 14 days and victim homes are within 150m, the area is declared a dengue cluster. Dengue clusters have been closing in on the south-west of Singapore.

NUS is happily clear right now. To be aware of the situation in August, when undergrads return to campus, I’ve subscribed to alerts at x-dengue.com, and included several field sites we will use or practicals in the various modules I run. There is an iPhone App which I’ve downloaded too. Certainly useful!

NEA’s Campaign Against Dengue webpage at dengue.gov.sg maps the clusters:

Be sure to prevent Aedes mosquito breeding with these tips, whether or not you are in a cluster.
