SINGAPORE: The Zika cluster located at Bedok North is now closed, according to data from the National Environment Agency's website on Friday (Sep 30). 

The area was identified as a potential cluster on Aug 30 after three Zika cases were reported there.

In all, five cases were reported in Bedok North Ave 2 (Block 514), Bedok North Ave 3 (Blocks 404, 405, 507), as well as Bedok North St 3 (Block 525). No new cases were reported in the last fortnight. 

The Zika cluster at Bedok North is the second to be closed, after NEA announced the closure of the Zika cluster at Bishan Street 12 on Wednesday. The cluster was closed on Sep 19 after no new cases were reported there fore two weeks, and the agency said it would continue "close surveillance" in the area until Oct 10. 

NEA said the continued surveillance period takes into account the incubation period of the Zika virus and the lifespan of the Aedes mosquito. 

Seven Zika clusters - Aljunied Crescent, Joo Seng Road, Elite Terrace, Ubi Ave 1, Balam Road, Sengkang Central and Hougang Ave 7 - remain. Of these, Aljunied Crescent is the only cluster which has reported cases in the past fortnight, according to NEA's website. 


Data on NEA's website also showed that no new Zika cases were reported on Friday. This is the second day this week - after Sep 26 - that no new locally transmitted Zika cases were reported.
