To allow the government to continue its response in addressing the threat and impact of COVID-19 in the country, this bill seeks to extend the validity of Republic Act No. 11469 or the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act until September 30, 2020.

In view of the foregoing, the immediate passage of this bill is earnestly sought.
