Dr. Noor Hisham last appeared on television for his daily press conference on the COVID-19 situation on Sunday (March 4th), and since then the daily updates on the pandemic has only been shared with the nation through press statements on Facebook, as reported by The Malaysian Reserve.
We still remember DG Hisham’s birthday last year when everyone in the media surprised him with a cake right after his daily COVID-19 press conference in Putrajaya. It was so heartwarming!
Malaysians, you heard what DG Hisham said!
We’re all in this together against COVID-19. Remember to always abide by the SOPs and stay at home if you can. Together, we can flatten the curve!
Also, Happy 58th Birthday, DG Hisham! Thank you for everything that you have done for the country and for Malaysians!
