Malaysia’s COVID-19 Hero: Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah
Malaysia’s Health Director-General Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah is among the “top doctors” in the world for his approach in handling the Covid-19 pandemic.
Dr Hisham, 57, who has been the Health Director-General since 2013, has been dubbed as a “trusted face” by Malaysians, thanks to his consistent updates on the virus on social media platforms, relying on facts and figures to make decisions and inform the public.
He has been updating the public on social media late into the night, way past working hours.
Dr Hisham, who has a Masters in Surgery and Medical degree from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, joined the Civil Service as a Medical Officer in August 1988.
He went on to specialize in Endocrine Surgery and did his training in various Universities in Adelaide and Sydney, Australia. He has published in many local and international journals and written textbook chapters on Endocrine Surgery.
