Dengue is a highly prevalent and globally neglected tropical disease. Dengue is caused by infectious viruses such as DENV-1, DENV-2, DENV-3 and DENV-4. The main vector for dengue diseases is from Aedes aegypti. As dengue is a systemic viral infection transmitted between humans by Aedes mosquitoes it is consider to be a life-threatening illness. Countless efforts have been initiated to reduce the number of dengue cases in Malaysia. However, the number of dengue cases kept on increasing throughout the year and had not stopped its rapid emergence and global spreads.
