Our Humble Health DG Says It’s All A Team Effort

Internet folks love the Ministry of Health’s Director-General so much that we took it upon ourselves to name him our National Hero!

After being applauded by the public and deemed as a “national hero” during a press conference held in Putrajaya on 29 March, Health DG Datuk Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah humbly downplayed his role saying that it all boils down to teamwork. 

According to The Star, Dr. Noor Hisham said it took a team effort to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic, “It’s not about me. It is what we can do together as one.”

He added that it wasn’t just his efforts that mattered, but what everyone was doing to serve their country, “What we can do for COVID-19. What is important is our service.”

The 21-second clip tweeted by BERNAMA has been viewed over 307 thousand times and has over 8,000 retweets, with many netizens praising him and the Health Ministry for their efficiency in tackling the outbreak. 

We’re in good hands, guys. Great job to our Health DG and all the frontliners who worked day and night battling this pandemic.
