"Selangor has the highest rate of dengue cases in the country.
“The dengue rate in the state has gone up by 338% with 29,972 cases," she told delegates at the 10th annual PKR congress, Saturday.
According to the Health Ministry, dengue cases in Selangor have spiked by 338%, with 29,972 cases recorded between January and July 27, compared to only 6,842 cases in the same period last year.
