The President had extended the state of calamity for another year because of the continued rise in coronavirus cases and the threat of COVID-19 variants.

In his proclamation, the President extended the state of calamity until September 12, 2022, unless earlier lifted or extended as circumstances may warrant.

According to President Duterte, the declaration will, among others, effectively afford the national government, as well as local government units (LGUs) ample latitude to continue to implement the vaccination program.

Also, it would allow the national government to utilize appropriate funds in the disaster preparedness and response efforts in order to contain the spread of coronavirus disease, control and monitor prices of prime commodities and basic necessities, provide basic services to affected populations.

All LGUs and government agencies were enjoined to continue rendering full assistance to and cooperation with each other and mobilize the necessary resources in order to undertake urgent, critical, and appropriate disaster response aid and measures in a timely manner in order to curtail and eliminate the threat of coronavirus disease.

All law enforcement agencies, with the support from the Armed Forces of the Philippines, are hereby directed to continue undertaking all necessary measures to ensure peace and order in affected areas, as may be necessary,” President Duterte said.
