We’re currently in Phase 3 of the Movement Control Order and according to recent reports, Malaysia is doing well in the fight against COVID-19.
One of the people that we have to thank for that is health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.
And we’re proud to say that we’re not the only ones to have noticed as the director-general has been recognized as one of the “‘top doctors’ in the world for his competency in handling the COVID-19 pandemic.”

A report from the China Global TV Network (CGTN) recently named Dr Noor Hisham as “one of the three leading doctors in the fight to stop the spread of COVID-19, together with United States’ infectious disease expert Dr Anthony Fauci and New Zealand’s director-general of health [Dr] Ashley Bloomfield,” The Star reported.
The network recognized and praised the three experts for being “calm, clear and trustworthy” sources of information for their countries.

Thanks to his consistent updates about the virus, Dr Noor Hisham has been named a “trusted face” by Malaysians all over. The health director-generals use of facts and figures to make decisions and inform the public through his social media platforms, has been applauded as well.
According to CGTN, his daily press briefings have become “must-watch TV” for updates on the virus and his “low-key image and unassuming air” contributes to Dr Noor Hisham’s appeal when explaining why MCO measurers are needed.

Health Minister, Dr Adham Baba also praised the doctor recognition and shared the report on his Facebook page calling it “A special tribute to the country’s medical field with recognition of Dr Noor Hisham as one of the world’s top three doctors.”
