Healthcare System At Risk Of Collapsing

Health DG Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said yesterday that hospitals in four states have surpassed their limits in treating Covid-19 patients, even as cases continue to rise. We look at the issue of overcapacity by first understanding how this is playing out on the ground level. Then, we find out how private hospitals can assist in this situation. Finally, we explore how else we can mobilise our resources.
