Doctors, nurses and healthcare workers have become the unsung heroes of the Covid-19 pandemic. They have been working tirelessly in the fight against the coronavirus. Good news for all health frontliners, they will be given rest days after months of working non-stop.
All health frontliners will be given rest days in stages and also counselling
As the number of positive cases has declined, Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said doctors, nurses and healthcare workers will be given rest days in stages. They would also be given counselling to prepare them for the eventuality of a spike in cases and also for burnout after working non-stop.
“We prepare for the worst, but hope for the best. This is a challenge not only for the medical frontliners but also the Health Ministry personnel.”
“We are the last line of defense to prevent a big disaster, huge number of fatalities and a sudden spike in cases from happening in the country.

He said it had reached a point where many of the healthcare workers could hardly differentiate between weekend and weekday.
He also emphasised that the sacrifices of all those involved had paid off with declining number of new cases, and patients in the wards, including in the Intensive Care Units (ICUs), also on the decline.
He expressed his appreciation to all other frontliners who had worked hard in the fight against the pandemic – including the police, armed forces, non- governmental organisations and other agencies.
