“The committee will also streamline the management of the Emergency with relevant stakeholders at both Federal and state levels,” he stated, adding that it will also lead the monitoring and enforcement of laws related to the Emergency at all levels.

KKMM said that the public feedback channel shows that the Government is concerned about the people during the pandemic and wants to listen to their views. Apart from providing feedback, members of the public can also join the the Telegram channel to receive the latest information about the Emergency. The channel currently has over 1,200 subscribers.
