It was last April when Malaysia’s director-general of Health, Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah was hailed as one of ‘the world’s top doctors’ by Chinese media who were impressed by his methods on handling the Covid-19 outbreak in Malaysia.
Months later, his reputation still stands strong as we make our way through fighting the third wave of the Covid-19 virus.
This time around, he’s been hailed one third of the ‘Covid’s Heroic Trio’ by The Independent Singapore, alongside New Zealand’s director-general of Health, Dr Ashley Bloomfield and Dr Anthony Stephen Fauci, director of the United States National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
In comparison with Singapore’s Director of Medical Services, Dr Kenneth Mak, they wrote, “Dr Mak is nothing like Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah, Malaysia’s Health Director-General. For most evenings the past few months, anxious Malaysians have been tuning in from all over the nation to watch the live telecast of the Covid-19 briefing, delivered by Dr Noor Hisham. He would calmly detail the latest developments, switching effortlessly between English and Bahasa. He is the country’s public face in Malaysia’s fight to contain the virus.”
“And he does not stop there. He tweets earnestly: “We need unity to fight this and not against each other. Our frontliners have been enduring the ground for the past 10 months 24/7. Mental and physical fatigue setting in. Some are prepared to throw in the towel. Please learn from Sabah.” Malaysia is experiencing a spike now because of, among other things, the Sabah state elections,” they added.
Hence, considering the fact that we have a world-renowned doctor as our director-general of Health, the least we could do is listen and adhere to his advice and standard operating procedures (SOPs) so that we can eradicate the Covid-19 virus from our shores.
