For more information on the origin of this blog, please refer to my letter to Today which was published, well today, Saturday, 30 July 2005 as extracted below. (For even more details, I'd urge you to click on the link here, Welcome to Dengue Alert - The Fight Against Dengue in Singapore or scroll all the way down to my very first blog yesterday, 29 July 2005).

I refer to the letter by Mr Lim Boon Hee, "Ultimately, it's NEA's responsibility" (July 28).

While the primary responsibility to control dengue rests with the National Environment Agency (NEA), everyone in Singapore has a part to play so that more comprehensive efforts can be made to target all areas of potential mosquito breeding grounds.

To provide a focal point, residents may want to consider taking photos of such potential hazards (stagnant water in drains and fields) and posting them on a blog I have set up at along with the relevant details so that the authorities can take the necessary action.

Alternatively, they can email them to the account detailed in the blog.

We cannot just rely on NEA officials or their contractors to do their job — everyone in Singapore has a vested interest and a role to play to ensure every corner of the country is covered
