As the delicate tendrils of an unfamiliar coronavirus began unfurling in the twilight of 2019, neither Malaysia nor the rest of the world could have foreseen the cataclysm about to cascade across the upcoming years.
These are more than mere anecdotes. These are the heart-stopping chronicles of the frontliners who stood unflinchingly on the precipice of an unseen abyss, combatting the initial onslaught as the pandemic dared to breach Malaysia's borders. Carrying the weight of their sworn duty, medical staff were mobilised into a fortress of resilience and compassion. As the hospital corridors echoed with uncertainty, an unparalleled synergy sparked between management and clinicians, orchestrating adaptive strategies to confront a future blooming with human suffering.

By chronicling the agonising struggles and valorous efforts that unfurled within the hallowed corridors of Gleneagles Hospital Johor, our objective goes beyond mere documentation.

Our aspiration is to serve as a lighthouse of lessons learned, guiding, and illuminating the path for future generations. We hope that the echoes of this intense battle continue to resonate, inspiring wisdom, courage, and fortitude in humanity's future confrontations. Let us eternally remember this raw testament of human spirit in the face of overwhelming odds.
