Dengue Situation in Singapore

31 Oct

Singapore is suffering from an unprecedented attack. No matter the control and surveillance programs of the government, it still persists. We are talking about mosquito populations. For your information, Singapore has one of the best programs to put off mosquito population in the world but more things should be done including the development of new tools.


In 1960, the country got through the first major dengue outbreak. The country successfully managed but in 2013, there were 22,000 cases of dengue reported. Up to this day, the government and the civilian parties cooperate to stop mosquito population from pestering.

According to Dr. Raman Velayudhan, a coordinator of World Health Organization (WHO), surveillance here is difficult because of the movement of people. It is difficult to trace especially with so much movement. With this, WHO is currently evaluating eighteen new technologies that could help deal with mosquito populations.


New technologies include control agents, traps and many more. There are no dengue vaccines in the market yet but Sanofi is doing its best to develop one. It is now on its phase three. Takeda and Merck are also developing vaccine.

The main concern of the country now is intensifying its hunt for the breeding grounds of mosquito which skilfully evade the authorities. As a part of the community, you have to put an effort too. You should not depend on the government. Do whatever you can to help the government in terms of hunting the breeding grounds. Always follow the guidelines and protocols. More importantly, you should be vigilant.
