WHO - Coordinating the Fight Against Covid-19

It goes without saying that Covid-19 is one of the biggest health disasters in recent memory. Malaysia alone has seen over 350,000 cases since January 2020. But who is leading the charge against this invisible enemy? For a World Health Day special, we speak to Dr Lo Ying-Ru, WHO Representative to Malaysia, Brunei and Singapore about the challenges of coordinating an international response to the pandemic.
