Dengue fever in Malaysia
Official reports of people infected with dengue fever have surpassed 50,000 cases nationwide. Selangor continues to be one of the most affected areas.
The risk of exposure to dengue fever virus is present throughout the country, but it will vary from place to place and may be high in many localities.
All travellers to areas where the dengue fever virus is active can reduce their risk of exposure by taking all necessary precautions to avoid mosquito bites. Many persons with dengue fever do not seek medical care and are not reported to health authorities. There may be many more cases in the community than the reports indicate.
