Lumpur: Malaysians in­clud­ing King Sul­tan Ab­dul­lah Sul­tan Ah­mad Shah and Prime Min­is­ter Muhyid­din Yassin ex­pressed ap­pre­ci­a­tions for nurses across the coun­try on Tues­day for the In­ter­na­tional Nurses Day. Sul­tan Ab­dul­lah and his wife paid the high­est re­gard for nurses for their ser­vice and con­tri­bu­tions in look­ing af­ter the safety and health of the peo­ple, the Na­tional Palace said in a state­ment.

It added that the sac­ri­fices and tire­less ef­forts by nurses as the first line of de­fence along with other front­lin­ers in com­bat­ing the COVID-19 is deeply val­ued. “Nurses are among the as­sets that are very im­por­tant to the Health Min­istry and na­tion. Con­grat­u­la­tions and thank you for your ser­vice to so­ci­ety. All of you are our he­roes and hero­ines,” it said.

Mean­while Prime Min­is­ter Muhyid­din com­mended the sac­ri­fice that nurses have made dur­ing these times as not many peo­ple have the strength and pa­tience to deal with such chal­leng­ing and high-risk work.

“Ev­ery year on this date, nurses around the world are be­ing cel­e­brated in ap­pre­ci­a­tion of their con­tri­bu­tions in the health­care sec­tor. How­ever, this year, the cel­e­bra­tion is more mean­ing­ful, not only for the nurses in Malaysia, but across the globe,” he said.

“I would like to take this op­por­tu­nity to ex­press my high­est ap­pre­ci­a­tion to all nurses in the coun­try. You are our na­tional he­roes and hero­ines,” he said.
