Chinese TV station, China Global TV Network (CGTN) named Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah among the “top doctors” in the world for his approach in handling the Covid-19 pandemic.
Dr Noor Hisham is selected alongside America’s Dr Anthony Fauci and New Zealand’s Ashley Bloomfield
According to CGTN, Dr Noor Hisham is one of the three leading doctors in the fight to curb the spread of the Covid-19, along with the US’ infectious disease expert Dr Anthony Fauci and New Zealand’s director-general of health Ashley Bloomfield.
These three top doctors in the world have received praise since the outbreak of Covid-19 virus for being calm, clear and trustable sources of information and facts for their countrymen.
“None of them are cabinet ministers but all three have emerged as the face of their country’s response to Covid-19,” said CGTN.
These three names have become household names and national heroes on social media
Some sources said they have been called rock stars and national heroes on social media, print and TV. “Amid an unprecedented global pandemic and as governments worldwide have sometimes been slow to react, introducing confusing measures and sending contradictory messages, Dr Fauci, Dr Bloomfield and Dr Hisham have become voices of reason and sources of calm and reassurance,” CGTN said.
Dr Noor Hisham has been dubbed a “trusted face” by Malaysians
Dr Noor Hisham, 57 has been dubbed a trusted face by Malaysians, tanks to his consistent updates on the virus on his 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.
CGTN said his “low-key image and unassuming air” contributed to Dr Noor Hisham’s appeal who has been the Health director-general since 2013.
“Malaysia is lucky to have” him
Dr Fauci and Bloomfield have also been calming and informative influences in their countries. Both figures have consistently kept the public updated, giving interviews whenever possible and working long hours as well. Fans of Dr Fauci and Bloomfield have even gone to the extent of setting up fan accounts on social media.
