The dengue virus causes epidemics in more than 100 tropical and sub-tropical countries, where over 2.5 billion people (over 40% of the world’s population) are currently at risk of dengue infections. In recent years, dengue has become the number one vector-borne disease in Sri Lanka. The worst ever dengue virus outbreaks experienced in 2009, 2010 and 2013 transformed dengue into a major health issue in Sri Lanka.
