When Dengue virus attacks, you can strike back

18 Feb 2020

While the coronavirus has been gathering a lot of attention, another virus has been making a comeback since the beginning of 2020: dengue. If the Singaporean population was used to DENV-2, a variant called DENV-3 is back after a 30-year absence.
As a result, the population’s immunity to this virus is low and there are higher transmission possibilities. Last week 345 people were diagnosed with the dengue virus, 50% more infections than last year at the same time.

But today we can help you make the right choices. There are simple precautions that you can take to protect yourself from contracting dengue, as well as government campaigns to follow.

What you need to know

You were recently told everything you need to know about the virus in this article (symptoms, how to relieve fevers, affected areas…). But there have been some changes.

The areas where you are more likely to be affected are Jurong East, Ang Mo Kio, Hougang areas.

In addition, this more virulent variant of dengue affected the highest number of cases since 2016.
The NEA also noted that the mosquito population is likely to increase with warmer months.

The government has therefore placed several areas on yellow and red alert and calls on the population to take the following precautions.

3 MAIN ACTIONS

1. Do the 5-step Mozzie Wipeout

2. Apply insect repellent and wear long-sleeved shirt and pants

3. Spray insecticide in dark corners such as under the bed and sofa, and behind the curtains at home

You can also find expert advice in this article, or the experience of Clement our COO who recently recovered from the dengue.
