With dengue fever cases in Singapore on the rise this year and staying at home being the new normal due to the pandemic, keeping our homes and families safe and mozzie-free should be our top priority.
There were a total of 26,126 dengue cases reported to the National Environment Agency (NEA) in the first 34 weeks of 2020. As of 24 August 2020, there are 366 active dengue clusters in Singapore, the agency reported, where intensive dengue transmission is ongoing.
One particular area of concern for the agency is the repeated mosquito breeding in homes. It may be daunting when you find an NEA officer knocking on your door for an inspection, but it is far more daunting to find out that 23 of out of 150 home inspections yielded multiple mosquito breeding habitats.
So let’s do our part in keeping the mosquito out of our home. Here, we’ve selected 10 items to keep your home mosquito-free. You can buy them online, and the best part is, they’re all under $30.
