Being the sole ID physician in Alexandra Hospital, she had to quickly assume the lead role of coordinating the management of COVID-19 cases. Dr Louisa also had the priveledge of having what she calls the “full COVID-19 experience”, being the clinical and community engagement lead of the mobile medical teams of 4 dormitories managed under Alexandra Hospital, as well as moving onto be part of the core medical team at the Community Care Facility run by NUHS.
