    KOTA KINABALU: The KPJ Sabah Specialist Hospital is lit in blue at night as a gesture of appreciation to all essential workers who have sacrificed so much during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Its chief executive officer Miranda Harumal said they have witnessed the relentless dedication shown by frontliners in this challenging period since the movement control order (MCO) was announced on March 18.
