Doctor in the House: The Impact of COVID-19 On Elective Surgeries
Dr George Lee, Consultant Urologist | Prof Dr April Camilla Roslani, Consultant Colorectal Surgeon and President, College of Surgeons, Academy of Medicine of Malaysia (CSAMM)
Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. A study projected that if Malaysian hospitals are faced with a 12-week long disruption of its services due to COVID-19, we could face a backlog of more than 150,000 surgeries which could take up to 11 months to clear. To help us break down these findings and find out whether this is a possible reality in the country, we’re speaking to Prof Dr April Camilla Roslani, President of the College of Surgeons, Academy of Medicine of Malaysia.
