MYMonashAlumni: Frontliner Story 8


Dr Syaukat and his beautiful family

My name is Muhammad Syaukat, and I'm currently working in Klinik Kesihatan Kundasang. My colleagues and I work in the primary healthcare setting, which involves educating and screening the public and identifying people at risk of contracting COVID-19.

We also collect samples of persons under investigation (PUIs) from reputable clinics and other healthcare centres.

I think my biggest challenge is the fear of contracting the disease and spreading it to my loved ones back home. Sometimes, I resort to sleeping in a separate place from my wife and daughter just to be sure.

I hope for the pandemic to end soon so we can go back to our default lives as quickly as possible.
