The weekly number of new dengue cases has reached 212 last week (30 Nov – 6 Dec). After dipping to a low of 149 weekly new cases three weeks ago, this number has increased steadily for the second consecutive week.
As a frame of reference

  • Around this period in 2012, there were 78 – 100 weekly new cases.
  • Around this period in 2013, there were 347 – 372 weekly new cases.

So while the current situation is not as bad as 2013, it is still worse than 2012.
