Doctor in the House: COVID-19 vs NCDs - Which Is More Important?

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. COVID-19 might be at the forefront of our minds right now, but the results from the 2019 National Health and Morbidity Survey have reminded us that there is another health crisis that we shouldn’t forget. With little to no improvements on the incidence of non-communicable diseases among our population, what can we do to balance our priorities between COVID-19 and NCDs? What are the changes that need to happen in our health system?
