In Singapore, a dengue cluster is defined as at least two cases located within 200 metres of each other, and whose dates of the onset of symptoms are within three weeks of each other. In 2000-2001, there were a total of 102 clusters with cluster size ranging from 2 to 29 cases. A nonlinear regression model of cluster size during this two-year period was developed using various entomological and climatic independent variables. The resultant model (R2 = 0.66882) was a combination of quadratic… CONTINUE READING
