MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte has submitted to Congress on Monday the second report on his use of additional powers against the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) crisis.

The weekly report is part of the checks and balances measure under the “Bayanihan to Heal as One Act” which gave Duterte additional powers to address the health crisis.


A joint congressional oversight committee composed of four members of each house to be appointed by the Senate President and the Speaker of the House of Representatives will determine whether Duterte’s acts, orders, rules, and regulations are within the restrictions provided.

To date, the Philippines has reported 3,660 confirmed COVID-19 cases, 163 of whom have died while 73 recovered.
