Mosquito-borne Dengue Disease on the Rise in Five Malaysian States

Kuala Lumpur: Five Malaysian states have registered a leap in the number of dengue fever cases in the first week of the year, with authorities fearing that the mosquito-borne// disease could further spread due to the rainy season, reports said Wednesday.
