ALOR SETAR, March 14 ― The Kedah state government will hold a special meeting this Monday to get the latest development on Covid-19 and its impact on the state’s economy, said Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir.

He said the meeting would be attended by all quarters, including state department  heads, representatives from all districts and all elected representatives, including from the Opposition.

“I’ll chair the meeting, where the State Health Department and the State Economic Planning Division will table the latest development on Covid-19 and the impact of the virus on the state economy, respectively,” he told reporters after attending the Iskoba Pekan Rabu Fun Ride 2020 programme here today.
