Although its only been six days since Singapore announced their first locally acquired Zika case, intensive testing has revealed nearly 190 local cases.
Today's announcement adds 38 cases, bringing their total to 189, and with no signs of slowing.
Singapore's tropical location, abundant local mosquito vectors, and extreme population density (#3rd in the world) all help to contribute to the virus's spread.
