in Slider/Top News

The world’s first dengue vaccine will be available in stores by June.

But before that, the Health Ministry is conducting clinical tests on to find out more about its long-term use.

“We are conducting a study to obtain sufficient data to support our use of the vaccine,” Minister Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam was quoted as saying by Bernama.

In what might be a little flicker in the dark statistics contributed by the deadly illness, Subramaniam revealed that fewer cases have been reported – 2,300 – since September compared to the 3,000 cases in August.

Since Jan 1, over 72,000 cases have been reported nationwide with Selangor topping the list followed by Kelantan and Kuala Lumpur.MYNEWSHUB
