COVID-19: How Are Our Medical Frontliners Coping?

For the past weeks, we’ve been hearing about the struggles and risks that healthcare workers are facing, as they battle COVID-19 on the frontlines. But in a field where they have already been facing high rates of burnout, how are they coping in this current situation? We’re speaking to Assoc Prof Dr Amer Siddiq bin Amer Nordin, Consultant Psychiatrist from University Malaya Medical Centre to help us understand what frontliners are going through.
