SINGAPORE : The number of influenza and acute respiratory infections continue to climb, remaining above the epidemic threshold. The Health Ministry said the number of patients seeking treatment in polyclinics in the third week of this month rose to 20,702, up 13 per cent from the week before.

Those in the vulnerable group - such as children, the elderly and patients with chronic illnesses - should also get vaccinated, it added.
