"There was a surge in dengue cases starting in May this year, a drastic increase as compared to the corresponding period in 2018, which recorded 38,190 cases," he said in a statement here Sunday (July 28).

According to Dr Dzulkefly, Selangor recorded the highest number of dengue cases with 40,849 cases while the Federal Territories of Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya recorded 8,794 cases, followed by Johor with 6,057 cases.
