If there is anything COVID-19 will teach us, it will be new forms of caring. It has shown us how we are all connected to each other.
Shout-out to our doctors, nurses, and all the staff including cleaners; the unsung heroes, who put their lives on the line to save ours. But giving a shout-out is not enough. The need to invest in health system is clearer than ever. BKPM accelerates medical business licensing as we do our part to help the country cope with the COVID-19 pandemic.
It’s never going to be an easy task or easy ask. But this is the time for you to invest in health system, an investment that will save lives; our lives or those we love in the future.
It’s time for all of us to take a deep breath, keep your loved ones close, our lives will be different from now on. This battle is bringing us back to the basics, we are all getting back to being fully human.
So do your part, and #StayHomeSaveLives
