Noor Hisham calls for unity

PETALING JAYA: Malaysians must unite in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, says Tan Sri Noor Hisham Abdullah (pic).

The Health director-general said that frontliners had been battling the pandemic “for the last 10 months 24/7” and some were reaching the end of their tethers.

“Many are feeling mentally and physically fatigue. Some are prepared to throw in the towel.

“Please learn from PRN Sabah, ” he said, referring to the Sabah state election that was held on Sept 26.“We need unity and togetherness to fight this war against Covid-19, not against each other.

“Together, we can make the impossible possible to flatten the curve again, ” he said, reminding Malaysians to stay at home if they have no important matters to attend to.

Dr Noor Hisham also said it was challenging to safeguard health and economy while reaching a balance between the two as the war against the coronavirus rages on.

“It is a challenge to safeguard and strike a balance between health and economy in our ongoing war against Covid-19.

“A loss of balance means loss of lives and loss of livelihoods, ” he said in a post on his Facebook and Twitter accounts yesterday.

Dr Noor Hisham’s call came amid a large number of positive cases recorded daily following the Sabah state election and the possible announcement of an Emergency by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
