Comments: As of 18 October, 55,894 suspected dengue cases were reported to the Epidemiology Unit from all over the island. Approximately 47.0 per cent of dengue cases were reported from the Western province. There has been 74 confirmed deaths due to dengue. This has alarmed authorities, as only 58 total deaths occurred due to dengue in 2018. The Epidemiology Unit identified five high risk districts, which include Colombo, Gampaha, Kalutara, Ratnapura and Galle. (Govt. of Sri Lanka, 21 Oct 2019)
