Spike in number of chikungunya cases in Singapore
The chikungunya outbreak appears to have taken hold in Singapore, with over 60 reported cases of infection this month alone.
This brings this year's total to 184, more than three times the 60 cases that were reported over the past three years.
The infections currently appear to be centred on the industrial area in Sungei Kadut and along Bukit Timah Road.
A Ministry of Health (MOH) spokesman said at least 37 of those identified with the disease are locals. Two were hospitalised but have been discharged.
