Happy Holidays and Have A Great New Year

Every end marks a new beginning. The year 2020 will forever be seared in history as a year that fundamentally challenged every aspect of our livelihood and how we do things. It was a year where we recognized how naïve we are and how unprepared we are in the face of a looming threat. It was a year of great difficulties and sorrows for many. The Covid-19 pandemic has changed and challenged our lives in a way that was impossible to imagine in hindsight. We now have new norms for how we work, how we shop, how we teach and learn, and how we interact. Indeed, history has shown that the best of creations have emerged from crises. Adversity can be turned into an opportunity as long as we keep an open mind. As we march into 2021, let us affirm that 2020 did not pass without important lifelong lessons learned. We thank everyone for their creativity, commitment, dedication and kindred partnership in these unprecedented times.

May 2021 be a year of joy, blessings and success for all of us.Have a wonderful holiday and Happy New Year!

Sincerely,National Coordinating OfficeMalaysia One Health University Network
