Latest on dengue : a significant drop!

I have just received my weekly report from MPSJ today.

From 27 April 2008 to 3 May 2008, there were only 2 reported cases in my constituency, only 1 was positive. This is a significant drop from the average of 20 reported cases (8 were positive cases) in the last few weeks.

I will continue to monitor this very closely. Meanwhile, residents are encouraged to continue to spend 10 mins a week to check their own houses to ensure they are free of aedes mosquitoes. This exercise must continue even if the cases drop to zero!
