ON Friday, I went to the Universiti Malaya Medical Centre in the Klang Valley for my yearly appointment at the Chest (Respiratory) Clinic. After a year, I thought I would be able to see a doctor who will review my use of a CPap device for obstructive sleep apnea, get the annual flu shot and, most importantly, check my lungs for any sign of damage from a Covid-19 infection at the end of last year.
Alas, it was not to be. The clinic had been cancelled because there were no doctors available. The staff member at the registration counter claimed that the clinic had sent me a text message in February informing me of the cancellation. I did NOT receive the text.
