The National Environment Agency in calling for sustained vigilance against mosquito breeding to prevent diseases like dengue and zika has called on members of the public to partner it to rid public areas and housing estates of potential mosquito breeding habitats.
Netizens have responded to NEA’s call and several netizens have posted pictures of such potential mosquito-breeding sites in Facebook.
Dawn Teo posting the picture below to Tampines Town Council’s FB said: “Saw this outside prime mart at Tampines st 81. Stagnant Water ponding needs to be cleared.”
Jeffrey Peter pointed out: “Last week, the Nparks had a contractor plant trees along Changi Coast Road. The root wrapings (plastics) was left in the thicket. Today, still the same.Sure mosquito breeding.”
