134 Deaths Related To The Dengue Mosquitoes Reported In Malaysia Since December 2019 - December 2020!

The third wave of Covid-19 is hitting our country. As some states in Malaysia has imposed the CMCO (Conditional Movement Control Order) to curb down this pandemic, let us not forget there is still another danger lurking around. Beware of the DENGUE MOSQUITOES!

A recent post by the CPRC (Crisis Preparedness And Response Centre) shows the statistic of mosquitoes related diseases cases in Malaysia from 29 December 2019 until 7 November 2020. In those 45 weeks, the total death reported in Malaysia by mosquitoes is 134.

All of the states have death records except for Kedah, Perlis, Terengganu and the federal territories, Labuan. In Sarawak, two deaths have happened. Apart from that, CPRC also reports a total of 2,404 Chikungunya cases were detected. However, no Zika case was spotted after tests run on Zika Surveillance by the (IMR) Institute of Medical Research. They have conducted screenings on 1,667 blood samples and 23 urine samples from individuals that were suspected of having the symptoms and signs of Zika.



MOH (Ministry of Health Malaysia) has also posted on their social media’s to remind us of the danger of mosquitoes. In their posts, MOH stated, like Covid-19, Dengue too has no vaccine or any specific medicine and treatment to deal with the diseases. Prevention is the best solution; therefore, mosquitoes related diseases can be avoided by stopping the spreading of Aedes mosquitoes.


MOH has provided guidelines that we can follow to prevent being bitten by the mosquitoes:

  1. Use bugs repellent when going outdoor.
  2. Spraying insecticide on the suspected breeding ground of mosquitoes.
  3. Wear long pants and long sleeve shirt.
  4. Installed mosquitoes repellents around the house.
  5. Installed insects screens on the windows and any entrance into the house.
  6. Sleeping with the mosquitoes net.
  7. Avoid being outdoor early in the morning (6-8 AM) or dusk (6-8 PM). These are the active hours for Aedes mosquitoes to bite.

Have proper cleanliness around your home. Make sure there is no spot for mosquitoes to breed such as any water reservoir, pot saucer or blocked drain. Although the fight for Covid-19 isn’t done yet, so is the fight for Dengue. So, STAY SAFE, NO AEDES, NO DENGUE, ZIKA AND CHIKUNGUNYA!!!
