The state is ranked sixth nationally in the number of cases detected and seventh for incidence rate.

In the first three weeks of the year, 20 patients have been reported , a figure higher than that of 2023, the majority in Benito Juárez; no deaths have been recorded.

Quintana Roo took off in 2024 with an increase in confirmed cases of dengue , reporting 20 in the first three weeks of this year, which represents 40% more than last year .

However, this still represents a downward trend from the peaks recorded in the second quarter of 2023, when more than 70 patients were diagnosed each week. The information available in the official data of the Ministry of Health indicates that in January, 13 patients with the disease were reported in Benito Juárezfour in Felipe Carrillo Puertotwo in Othón P. Blanco, and one in Solidaridad. To date, there are no known fatalities.

This situation places Quintana Roo in sixth place nationally in the number of dengue cases and seventh in incidence rate, when a few months ago it came to lead the national top and for almost the entire year to be the State of the Peninsula of Yucatán most affected.

The State Health Services of Quintana Roo stated that a frontal fight against dengue is being carried out, increasing the investment to 168 million pesos to acquire equipment, vehicles, personnel, and fumigation tools to combat this disease.
