Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar yesterday warned the public not to be rude or aggressive to phone operators of the Health Advice Line 148. He said legal action can be taken on such callers.

Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham said, “The Ministry of Health (MoH) is aware that the BruHealth app is still in its early stages of implementation and there are some issues that may be encountered by the public either during registration or updating their daily health status.”

The minister said, “The BruHealth app is being updated to allow easier use especially for those unable to download the application due to phone incompatibility. The MoH is seeking the public’s cooperation to be patient and considerate when contacting the operators of the Health Advice Line 148 for advice and assistance. Legal action can be taken on any caller who is found to be rude and violent to operators on duty.”
