MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday submitted to Congress his 11th report on the use of his additional powers to address the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

As mandated by the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act, the President is to report all acts performed in relation to the government’s efforts against the health crisis.

The President’s report came even as some senators said that the Bayanihan law was scheduled to expire on June 5 when both chambers of Congress adjourned the session.

Malacañang, however, said the law will remain effective until June 25 due to its sunset provision.
