Doctor in the House: Putting The COVID-19 Testing Strategy To Use

The National COVID-19 Testing Strategy was launched late last year to help the country transition  to living with COVID-19 as an endemic disease. The testing strategy is meant to enable safe reopening of the economy and social sectors, empower us to live safely, and reduce transmission of COVID-19. As we ease into the new year with the reopening of schools and workplaces, Dr George Lee joins us to speak to Prof Dr Victor Hoe, Professor of Occupational and Environmental Health, from University of Malaya, about how we can utilise the testing strategy effectively and whether it fully addresses our transition to endemicity.
