In the continuous fight against Dengue, community action is key. Every individual has an important part to play in preventing mosquito breeding.
With Dengue cases on the rise over the past few weeks, more collective effort is needed to help reduce the chances of Dengue transmission in our neighbourhoods. Majority of the breeding habitats were found within homes, in common spots such as pails, flower pot plates/trays as well as toilet bowls. And all it takes is a 20-cent sized drop of water for mosquitoes to breed in.
On top of vector control and source reduction efforts, NEA is also working closely with members of the community to remind residents to practise the Mozzie Wipeout.
In this series, we look at how the Woodlands community is taking active steps to keep their families and neighbourhood safe.
Together, we can fight Dengue. Do the #MozzieWipeout today.
