Den-1 Risk Areas

Residents living in the following nine areas with a higher risk of DEN-1 virus transmission are advised to step up dengue prevention measures by checking for stagnant water in their homes at least once a week. Our population has lower immunity of the DEN-1 virus serotype which could mean quicker transmission of dengue in these neighbourhoods if effort is not taken to remove all mosquito breeding habitats. NEA on its part will work together with members of the Inter Agency Dengue Task Force to step up checks in the public areas in these neighbourhoods.

The areas are:
Jurong West Ave 1 / Jurong West Street 51
Fernvale Road / Fernvale Link
Lorong 5 Toa Payoh / Lorong 7 Toa Payoh
Claymore Hill
River Valley Close / River Valley Road
Serangoon Road
Bedok Reservoir Road
Lorong 6, 8, 10, 12 Geylang
Lorong 22, 24, 24A, 26, 28, 30, 32 Geylang
