Reported dengue disease cases and deaths in Malaysia 2000–2011 [3], [9], [12], [13], [16]–[23].

(A) Number of reported dengue disease cases (incidence per 100,000 population shown as numbers for the total cases only). (B) Number of reported deaths. (C) CFRs. The total annual number of dengue disease cases reported in Malaysia increased between 2000 and 2010 and decreased in 2011. Between 2000 and 2010, the incidence rate of dengue disease was consistently high (above 125 per 100,000 population). The majority of dengue disease cases were reported as DF and the ratio of DF to DHF cases remained fairly constant. The number of annual deaths from dengue disease increased between 2000 and 2010. However, after 2000 the CFR for DF+DHF remained fairly constant. CFR, case fatality rate; DF, dengue fever; DHF dengue haemorrhagic fever.
