According to Ministry of Health, 4 death thus far between Sep 9-14 this year. 43 death to-date, versus 27 last year. It is at an alarming stage. You can read all the details here.
Our twins unfortunately also made it to the statistics of the dengue alert in Malaysia for the month of September.
Together with them at the same time of the admission was 2 females, also suspected dengue cases.
The twins went for swim near their uncle’s condo and came back with high fever the next day. Or maybe they have got it while they were at school. But unlikely, as they were at home during the weekend. The same mosquito may have beaten the twins at the same time.
Advice given by the physician, beware between 5am-7am, and 5pm-7pm period. The mosquitos are the most active at that time.
