“Shahir and Mastura, you are our heroes” – Health DG


HEALTH director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah once again took to social media to express his gratitude and appreciation towards Health Ministry (MOH) frontliners.

This time it was for health inspectors Shahir Razali and Mastura Maznor whom he called heroes, saying that they truly internalised the ministry’s tagline ‘we are ready to serve’.

“Treating human life delicately without racial or religious boundaries. Our health inspector Shahir Razali carrying this elderly Chinese aunty to the centre for COVID-19 testing.

“Fasting in Ramadan and serving the people in need while on full personal protective equipment (PPE) suits, indeed you guys are our heroes‬. Very proud of you both and thank you,” Dr Noor Hisham wrote on his Facebook post, tonight.

He attached the post with two images, the first showing one of duo carrying the senior citizen while the other held a walker, and the second image showed four frontliners in full PPE suit, with the words ‘We Love Malaysia, Stay Safe’ written on their gloves.

Their kind gesture also attracted netizens who showered praises and accolades in the comment section, with the post garnering more than 16,000 likes and 756 shares within an hour.
