What is hairstyle when the country is in a war against deadly virus Covid-19?
More than 60 staff of Likas Women and Children’s hospital, led by its director Dr Tan Bee Hwai, had their hair cut by not their favorite hairdresser.
According to report by Sabah ShinChew Daily, Dr Tan said it was his first time to have cut his hair for so short.
“Short hair reduces the risk of infection and makes it easier to wear and remove personal protective equipment such as masks, eye masks and headgear.
“I am pleased to see that all the medical staff showed teamwork spirit and have short hair.”
The hair-cutting drive, which ran from 11am until 3pm, was a brainchild of the hospital Emergency physician Dr Cheah Phee Kheng who saw a paramedic shaved himself and others using an electrical shaver.
“Many health care workers have recently wanted haircuts but barbershops are closed during this period.
“My colleague and I each contacted a stylist who knew each other yesterday. They said nothing and promised to come to the hospital and cut the hair for the medical staff.”
