Our own Health director-general, Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah has been named as one of the top three doctors in the world, battling the Covid-19 pandemic.
The recognition was given by China Global TV Network, which spoke of Dr Noor Hishamâ€™s straightforward and calm approach to handling the Covid-19 outbreak in Malaysia on its website.
According to CGTN, hardly anyone was aware of Dr Noor Hisham a few months ago, but now he has become the most â€œtrustableâ€ source of information and facts on the pandemic in their own country.

Dr Noor Hisham was crowned the title alongside the United Statesâ€™ Dr Anthony Fauci and New Zealandâ€™s Dr Ashley Bloomfield.
CGTN wrote that Dr Anthony is the director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAD), while Dr Ashley is the director-general of health in New Zealand.
Dr Noor Hisham has since been receiving congratulatory messages for the acknowledgement.
