Singapore is coming to grips with a severe dengue fever pandemic.

According to ChannelNews Asia, "Compassvale is the largest dengue cluster in Singapore, with 165 dengue cases reported as of Friday. About 40 workers at an executive condominium construction site along Compassvale Road were infected by dengue recently."

The neighborhood surrounding Compassvale has been declared a dengue fever "hot spot."

As reported by ChannleNews Asia, "The National Environment Agency had imposed a stop-work order twice to destroy the mosquito-breeding grounds at the site. Work was stopped for 18 days over the last three months, but it has since resumed after NEA found the site free of mosquito breeding."

Singapore officials have pointed out that potted vases are common breeding grounds for dengue fever mosquitoes.
