MYMonashAlumni: Frontliner Story 11

“I'm a physician serving in a district hospital in Johor and I have been covering a nearby designated COVID-19 hospital from time to time.”

“While managing COVID-19 patients has its own set of challenges, the most difficult situation for me perhaps is isolation from my family. I have not been home or seen my 2-year old son for weeks now.”

“Having said that, it is heartwarming to see healthcare workers supporting each other in the fight against the pandemic. I've also had the pleasure to work with some of the most dedicated and inspiring figures in the field during this period.”

“I hope that someday when this is over, I can sit down and finally enjoy some stay-at-home time with my family and get that long-overdue haircut!”
