Eurocham / MDBC: BizTalk with DG Health

August 5, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Dear Members,

The COVID – 19 pandemic is the defining global health crisis of our time, and the most significant challenge humanity has faced in recent years. Since its emergence in late 2019, the virus has spread to every continent and spared no country. Malaysia’s preparedness and planning began relatively early, with initial plans starting in December 2019, diagnostic reagents procurement in January 2020, and several renovations to hospital facilities done in February 2020.

As we can see from daily fluctuations in new COVID – 19 infections, the threat remains, and will continue until a specific treatment is found and an effective vaccine is mass produced.   Malaysia implemented strict border controls during the Movement Control Order (MCO), limiting inbound international travel to reduce the risk of possible transmission from entering the country. This measure has allowed us time to optimise our emergency preparedness and health systems capacity.  Between border controls and a variety of other measures employed during the MCO, Malaysia has managed to achieve a recovery rate of 97.7%, and a fatality rate of 1.39%.  It is one of several countries that have successfully flattened the curve, protected the vulnerable, and reduced the detrimental socio – economic aftermath of the pandemic.

Join us at this BizTalk with the Director – General of Health, Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah, as he takes us through Malaysia’s preparations and the multi – faceted strategies the country employed to fight COVID – 19, involving a myriad of agencies and NGOs.
