I'm staying around Cairnhill area, and a couple of weeks ago, there was a banner down the street, stating that there are 46 cases of dengue reported around that area (which I assumed is that street). The next street has another banner with 15 cases reported. Previously, someone from NEA came down to my apartment to check for breeding of mossies.
I just checked on the http://www.dengue.gov.sg/
and noticed that my area is not categorized as a dengue hotspot (clusters with 10 or more cases). I also noticed that the banner by my street, showing the number of dengue reported is removed. The banner on the next street (the one with 15 reported cases) is still hanging.
I'm just wondering is it a case whereby the "dengue situation" on my street have cool off or is there another reason?
There are only 5 completed condos
plus 4 properties under constructions on the street. Every weekend, there are tons of people along the narrow street to view properties. There is a part of me that suspect property
owners/developers have removed the banner due to bad publicity of the area. Is that possible/allowed?
I suspect the high dengue rate could be due to the massive construction going on and the unacceptable living conditions the construction workers are staying.
