Dengue fever dangerously rises in Singapore

Cases of dengue fever have begun to rise alarmingly in Singapore.

According to a foreign news agency, dengue fever is spreading rapidly in Singapore and 14,000 cases of dengue have been reported in the country this year.

According to health officials in Singapore, dengue cases could rise sharply by the end of the year.

The officials also said, 1,468 people have contracted with dengue fever in the country last week, while 16 people have died of dengue so far.

Authorities fear dengue cases could rise in the country as June to October is the mosquito breeding season.

The Singaporean government is taking other steps, including removing stagnant water, to control the spread of dengue fever.

Earlier, Singapore has begun providing Bluetooth-enabled contact tracing devices to halt the spread of respiratory disease coronavirus.

Devices named Trace Together tokens can be the substitute to the government’s contact racing smartphone app. The devices are made for those who do not own or use a smartphone.

People have doubts regarding the privacy matter and usage of these devices. Ministers have clarified that these devices will not trace people’s movements.
