Covid-19: Report local issues with MapmyIndia's Move app
MapmyIndia maps and Move app has introduced a feature that enables citizens to report issues related to the Coronavirus lockdown to concerned authorities, including PMOIndia, local governments and police.
Using this feature, citizens can share or tag relevant authorities and pin-point the issues faced at a particular location. The authorities can then notify the nearest suitable person to reach the spot.
According to MapmyIndia, the feature will help authorities know about public grievances, lapses in enforcement related to the lockdown and non-allowance of delivery of essentials. It is also expected to reduce delays as the authorities will have accurate information about the nature of the problem and the location.
To activate this feature, users can click on "Report an Issue" on the Move app and then click "Share" to share the live location on social media platforms.
A live dashboard (maps.mapmyindia.com/corona) portrays all the latest updates related to the Coronavirus in India. This includes the number of confirmed cases, recoveries as well as information on authorised Covid-19 facilities across India.
A search feature can be used to find and navigate to nearby Coronavirus testing, treatment and isolation centres. To use this feature, search “Corona” on Maps.mapmyindia.com or the Move app.

Very thoughtful feature addition. Other providers like Google Maps should follow this too and make our journey in this difficult time easier. Alternatively state-wise corona reporting helplines can also be leveraged to get this guidance if someone is not using MMI apps.
