Doctor in the House: Dealing with COVID-19 In the North

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. Several states in Malaysia are dealing with sudden spikes in COVID-19 cases, due to outbreaks in certain clusters. Not all states have the resources and capacity that Kuala Lumpur and the Klang Valley enjoy. We speak to two members of Universiti Sains Malaysia’s COVID-19 Task Force: Dr Salbiah Mohd Isa, chemical pathologist, and Dr Kumitaa Theva Das, from the Infectomics Cluster, Advanced Medical and Dental Institute, to find out how diagnostic services in the northern region are coping with the increased demand in testing.
