Taiwan has long been affected by the transmission of dengue virus by mosquitoes. The map shows the distribution of reported local dengue cases in Taiwan in 2008, with Kaohsiung City having the highest reported numbers followed by Kaohsiung County. In 2002, for example, there was an outbreak in Southern Taiwan involving 5336 indigenous cases, 242 of which suffered from dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF) and 21 died.

多年來,台灣受登格熱病毒傳播影響,而蚊子是傳播媒介。地圖顯示二零零八年台灣本土登革熱病例分佈,當中高雄市數目最高,其次是高雄縣。2002年登革熱席捲南台灣,全年本土確定病例數達5,336例,其中包括登革出血熱242例,並有21名患者不幸死亡。
