PETALING JAYA: The nation calls him a national hero, but for Health Ministry director-general Datuk Seri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah, the honour goes to all the healthcare workers and frontliners battling Covid-19 in the country, noting they have been “nothing short of amazing”. The health workforce and frontliners, both in the public and private sector, have stepped up and are giving their all in trying to combat Covid-19, he added.

“Many have left their loved ones at home and have given up time and comfort to be at the frontlines to treat patients.

“The ministry sees each and every one of you and we appreciate everything you have done and continue to do daily.

“The sincere dedication shown by every member of the health workforce in the face of this overwhelming pandemic is nothing short of amazing.

“We salute you, we appreciate you. We thank you all, ” he said on his Facebook page yesterday.

He also conveyed his gratitude to the generosity of numerous individuals and organisations, ranging from big to small and local to multinationals.

“On behalf of all of us at the frontlines, I thank each and every one of you, ” he added.

Dr Noor Hisham said the ministry was doing everything it could to ensure the safety of all Malaysians.

He urged Malaysians to play their part in battling Covid-19, adding that they were key to stopping the spread.

“Our hope at this time, you will continue to stay home and keep observing the movement control order. You are crucial in flattening the curve, thereby enabling us more time and capacity to cater to your healthcare needs.

“Every Malaysian must play their part in battling this pandemic, ” he said.
