Via Daily Express :

" Papar: The number of dengue cases in Malaysia this year has increased from 39,597 and 84 deaths in 2009 to 45,037 and 133 deaths as at Dec 17.

Selangor recorded the highest number with 15,964 cases and 44 deaths, followed by Johor with 4,299 cases and 12 deaths, and Sarawak with 4,174 cases with 14 deaths.

Health Deputy Minister Datuk Rosnah Abdul Rashid Shirlin, when launching the Karnival Mesra organised by the Papar District Hospital, near here, Saturday, said Sabah is at the moderate level with 2,063 cases and three deaths this year.

"But it doesn't mean we should be less concerned about ensuring its prevention," she stressed.
Five localities in Sabah are still considered dengue-active, namely Kg Pasir Putih (two cases) and Kg Jawa (two cases) in Tawau, Taman Wira Jaya (two cases) and Kg Limbungan (two cases) in Tuaran and Kg Lipong in Beluran."
