The National Environment Agency (NEA) posted onto their Facebook page saying that they are still detecting cases of profuse mosquito breeding during their checks despite warning about the sharp rise in dengue cases.
Here is what they said
Despite warning about the sharp rise in dengue cases and current serious dengue situation in Singapore, NEA is still detecting cases of profuse mosquito breeding during our checks. NEA will take strong enforcement action against such cases.
For households found with repeat mosquito breeding offences and multiple mosquito breeding habitats, offenders may face a fine of up to $5,000 or imprisonment, or both, for the first court conviction. Repeat offenders will be given heftier penalties or sent to court. We urge premises owners and occupiers to take urgent action to carry out mosquito prevention and control measures.
Let’s all take immediate action to reduce the mosquito vector population, by regularly practising the following Mozzie Wipeout ‘B-L-O-C-K’ steps, to target common mosquito breeding habitats:
o 𝗕reak up hardened soil
o 𝗟ift and empty flowerpot plates
o 𝗢verturn pails and wipe their rims
o 𝗖hange water in vases
o 𝗞eep roof gutters clear and place BTI insecticide inside
