Singapore Reports Fewer Dengue Cases in 2006

About 3,100 dengue cases were reported in Singapore last year, dropping significantly from the previous year's number of 14,200//, according to a Channel NewsAsia report on Wednesday.

The number of homes found to be breeding mosquitoes dropped to just 18 in every 10,000 homes last year, compared to 53 in 2005, the report said.

These was thanks to the dengue prevention campaign launched by the government, it said.

The National Environment Agency (NEA) carried out 1.5 million inspections on homes to find out mosquitoes breeding places last year, up 60 percent from 2005.

Furthermore, during the run-up to the Lunar New Year which will fall on Feb. 17, environment officers have worked with plant nurseries to check their premises and the plants that were specially brought in for the Lunar New Year for mosquito breeding, the report said.

The agency has distributed thousands of posters to residents and companies, urging them to take their parts to minimize mosquito breeding.

Homes or commercial areas which are found to be breeding mosquitoes will be fined 200 Singapore dollars (about 130 U.S. dollars) each.

Sixty dengue cases a week were reported for the first month of this year, the same weekly average as last year, according to the report.
