Five new dengue clusters have also been identified in Geylang, where more than 30 people have fallen ill. Over the past four days, seven dengue cases were reported at Lorong 9 to Lorong 21 in Geylang.

Shopowners in the area have been busy cleaning up drains and ditches to prevent mosquito breeding.
