SINGAPORE: Some residents in Serangoon Gardens are taking steps to wipe out breeding spots of the Aedes mosquito.
About 67 dengue cases have been reported so far in that area.
The management of the Singapore Cheshire Home has roped in the help of pest busters.
It may soon roll out daily checks within its premises.
The home is undergoing expansion and it is situated beside a construction site. So it is taking extra care to ensure there is no risk of a dengue outbreak.
It has also set aside a quarantine area, in case its residents come down with dengue fever.
Meanwhile, some residents in the area are taking the initiative to wipe out the mozzies by paying for pest control once a month. - CNA/al
