KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 10 — Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah today warned Malaysians that the “worst is yet to come” as the country recorded 71 Covid-19 deaths in just the first nine days of the year.

Taking to his Facebook page, the Health director-general made a heartfelt plea to Malaysians to follow the comply with the government’s regulations to arrest the spread of the coronavirus even as the contagion exacts a mental toll on medical workers. 

“In first nine months last year, we have less than 100 fatalities. This year, in only nine days, we already have 71 deaths. I fear the worst is yet to come,” Dr Noor Hisham posted in the comments section of his Facebook page.

He also spoke of the difficulties faced by the medical frontliners in treating Covid-19 patients, having to don the full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) suits that are stuffy, only to see some of them die from the virus, and then having to handle the bodies post-mortem.
