In just one week the number of Zika cases in Singapore has gone from zero to more than 250.
The National Environment Agency has been doing its utmost to fight mosquitoes, including daily fumigation.
Meanwhile thousands of Singaporeans have caught the Pokemon bug and are out and about trying to catch the playful monsters.
Perhaps it would be advisable to halt play during this period, lest players catch Zika instead.
We all have a role to play in the fight against Zika.
