THE second victim of this year's dengue epidemic was cremated on Monday at Mandai Crematorium, a day after he died in Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH).

Yesterday, The Straits Times visited the flat in Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3 where the victim - a 60-year-old Singaporean Chinese man - reportedly stayed.

Several people inside were seen cleaning the flat, which had a strong smell of disinfectant.

When approached, two of the occupants - dressed in black - denied that the victim lived there, and directed reporters to the flat next door.
