Our Health DG, Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah, has pretty much been a national hero ever since the Covid-19 pandemic began. As everyone is well aware, due to his contributions, he was named one of the ‘top doctors’ in the world. His response to this title might actually make you respect him more!

Despite this being a notable achievement, he simply brushed off the title and instead said that the praise should be directed to the leaders and frontliners for battling the Covid-19 outbreak. He even thanked our PM, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin for implementing the MCO.

“I see this as a recognition for the country, not for me.”

According to The Star, he was grateful to all the ministries and agencies for the MCO work. Not only that, he even thanked the police, the Armed Forces and the Immigration Department for their work at the border control.“It is not about me,” he simply said during his daily press conference yesterday.

A few days ago, he was named alongside America’s Dr Anthony Fauci and New Zealand’s Ashley Bloomfield as the top 3 doctors in the world when handling the Covid-19 pandemic. All three were lauded for their calm demeanor, and above all for being a trustworthy source of information for their respective countrymen, allowing the nation to continue making the right decisions when dealing with this pandemic.

We couldn’t be prouder of our Health DG on his accomplishments. The fact that he’s so humble about it is the cherry on top!
