Regarding the use of the ‘Moh Chana’ application, people are being highly encouraged to install the application on their smartphones, no penalty was charged for those who do not, according to the government officials today.

“The ‘Moh Chana’ application will facilitate and reduce the burden of medical officials when tracking infected patient’s travel records. However, if it is inconvenient for you to do so, you can write your records on paper. It works both ways,” the spokesperson stated.
