Hand Food Mouth Disease (HFMD)

Did it affect you?

As of 10 Aug 2018, these are the childcare centres and kindergartens with more than 10 HFMD cases or an attack rate* greater than 13%, and a transmission period of more than 16 days (prolonged transmission).

Hand, foot and mouth disease is widespread and will be outbreak anytime in Singapore. In March 2018, there are 1105 cases in one week, in 2000 and 2008, 7 and 2 children died from HFMD respectively in Singapore. HFMD is infected by touching uncleaned things(like garbage bins), which produce virus.

Proper hygiene should also be practiced at home so as to prevent transmission to other family members.

Smart bin with auto lid opening, auto bag sealing, packing and replacement, can protect us from trash virus and disease.
