Dengue Is On The Rise, Does That Mean That We Should Cycle Faster?

Watch out for mozzies when you are out riding! 

Channel News Asia reported that “Dengue cases reported in first week of 2019 hit highest in more than two years.”

As a tropical country, Singapore is prime breeding ground for mosquitoes, which proliferate in warm temperatures. According to the National Environmental Agency website, the number of dengue cases in Singapore has increased over the past three consecutive weeks, with the first week of 2019 reporting 207 cases.

There has been a sudden rise in dengue clusters in Singapore at the beginning of 2019. Not the best news for the new year.

The Aedes mosquito is known to transmit viruses such as Zika, Dengue, and Chikungunya, with the most common one in Singapore being Dengue. 

 

Get ready to smother yourself in mozzie repellent before you head out for a ride, or maybe it’s time to pedal harder and go faster? 😉

 

Ride safe everyone. And be careful of the mozzies.
