Mr Matthias Yao, Mayor of South East CDC, said: "Overall in Singapore, compared to the same period last year, dengue cases more than doubled. In our district the numbers went up only 43 percent - that's less than half the rate."I'm sure South East CDC did a great job at tacking dengue in their area, but i still think that having 43% more dengue cases in the CDC, compared to last year is scary enough.
What we should be aiming for is 0 cases. And any number >0 is bad.
Its like saying :
"I failed my exam. I got 40/100 marks. Compared to the rest of the class, who also failed and got average 20/100. I am the best failure in the class! "
