President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday evening thanked Congress for granting him special powers to combat the coronavirus crisis.

Duterte expressed his gratitude to Senate President Vicente Sotto III and House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano “for the strong and decisive leadership you have demonstrated in shepherding this measure to fruition during this critical time in our national history.”

The passage of Bayanihan to Heal as One Act bill, he added, will “effectively” respond to the challenges brought about by the virus that first emerged in Wuhan, China late last year.

“To the members of both houses of Congress who sponsored and voted for this measure, I express my sincerest gratitude to all of you for granting our most urgent requests,” the President said in a public address.

“Finally, the Executive Department can move, decide and act freely for the best interest of the Filipino people during this health crisis,” according to him.
