Singapore on Tuesday confirmed another 26 locally-transmitted Zika cases, bringing the total up to 82, with some new victims being identified outside of the previously-affected areas.
Five of the cases live or work in Kallang Way and Paya Lebar Way, north of Sims Drive and Aljunied, the previously affected areas that have since seen 17 more cases, according to a joint statement issued by the National Environment Agency (NEA) and the Ministry of Health (MOH) on Tuesday.
The statement added that the remaining four cases were being investigated for their links to the affected regions.
Singapore's NEA will be commencing mosquito control operations and conduct public outreach in Kallang Way and Paya Lebar Way, according to an official statement.
The agency also said it would also be inspecting construction sites and cooperate with dormitory operators, after 39 foreign workers at a Sims Drive construction site were infected with the Zika virus.
