Commenting on Singapore's dengue problem, SMU Associate Professor of Science, Technology and Society Winston Chow said, "We will not be able to eradicate dengue (because) the constant weather extremes create the perfect breeding conditions for mosquitoes." Assoc Prof Chow, who has contracted dengue fever twice, lamented the escalating scale of the problem. "In terms of adaptation, Singapore has excellent health care infrastructure and countless policies in place to reduce the risks – but there's only so much that it can do," he said.
