There were 2,460 new cases of dengue fever and 61 new cases of dengue hemorrhagic fever between January 1 and March 12 this year, so says my unnamed World Bank friend who receives travel alerts every time she has to travel to this godforsaken part of the world.
You really have to take precautions even though the alert has been downgraded to ‘warning’ level from ‘epidemic’ level. There were 9,459 cases last year. If I were in charge, I’d close down any party on Sentosa for good. Anything outdoors, got mosquito. You never know what they get up to.
