President Rodrigo Duterte has extended the state of calamity in the Philippines due to the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic.

Duterte signed Proclamation No. 1021 on September 16, 2020, extending his state of calamity declaration for one year.

Cited the rising cases of Covid-19, the Chief Executive said the extension will “effectively afford the national government and local government units (LGUs) ample latitude to continue utilizing appropriate funds, including the Quick Response Fund, in their disaster preparedness and response efforts.”

Duterte likewise enjoined all government agencies and LGUs to mobilize the necessary resources to undertake “critical, urgent, and appropriate” disaster response aid and measures in a timely manner to curb the virus.

All law enforcement agencies are also directed to continue undertaking all necessary measures to ensure peace and order in affected areas.
