Doctor in the House: Is COVID-19 Well And Truly Over?

In early May, the World Health Organization announced that COVID-19 is no longer considered a public health emergency of international concern, or PHEIC. Following the announcement, the Ministry of Health will conduct a review of Malaysia’s COVID-19 status in mid-June. What does the ending of COVID-19 as a PHEIC mean for Malaysia - what kind of pandemic preparedness protocols will continue to be important, considering COVID-19 will not be the last infectious disease outbreak seen by the world? And what should all of us bear in mind, with regard to vaccination, ventilation and masking? Datuk Dr Christopher Lee, Infectious Diseases Physician, joins Dr George Lee to discuss.
