By Sheeda Fathil

SHAH ALAM, June 2 — A total of 757 dengue cases have been registered during the epidemic week 22 from May 24 to May 30, says state executive councillor Dr Siti Mariah Mahmud.

The Selangor Health, Welfare, Women Empowerment and Family Committee chairman said this reflects a 5.1 per cent drop in cases in comparison to the previous week, where 798 dengue cases were recorded.

She said no deaths were reported compared to the one fatality the week before.

“This brings the cumulative dengue death toll at 28, which is the same figure recorded over the same period last year.

“The cumulative decrease in dengue cases over the same time period in 2019 was 11.9 per cent,” she said on a Facebook post today.

Dr Siti Mariah had reminded those who are showing dengue-fever symptoms should seek immediate medical attention.

She had also reminded the people of Selangor to conduct dengue preventive measures, such as eliminating Aedes mosquito breeding grounds, while at the same continue efforts in curbing the Covid-19 infection.
