Methods: We examined time-series of the number of hospital admissions of dengue fever in relation to river levels from 2005 to 2009 using generalized linear Poisson regression models adjusting for seasonal, between-year variation, public holidays and temperature.

Results: There was strong evidence for an increase in dengue fever at high river levels.
