How will the absence of a Prime Minister and cabinet, and more importantly a Health Minister, affect our COVID-19 response and vaccine rollout? Who can we appoint as a Health Minister and why is it important that we fill that role? We speak to independent health policies specialist Dr Khor Swee Kheng to find out more.
