Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is expected to unveil a roadmap that will help the country recover from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic when he delivers his fifth State of the Nation Address (SONA) on Monday, Malacañang said Wednesday.

Palace spokesman Harry Roque Jr. said Duterte would address how the coronavirus pandemic took its toll in the Philippines, as well as the strategy of his government to help the country recover from the crisis.

“He will be presenting a roadmap for recovery, which the economic team has not unveiled yet, and I think the reason is they want to unveil it in the SONA itself and many fora after the SONA,” Roque said in an interview with CNN Philippines.

He did not provide details of the “roadmap.”

But, he said the President was expected to address the efforts of the government to combat the disease “in much detail.”

“I think there’s no other problem as big as Covid-19 right now. We can imagine that the upcoming State of the Nation Address will discuss this pandemic in much detail,” Roque said.

“The President will summarize the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic as well as the responses of the government and the way forward on how the government will actually approach this problem,” he added.

The President has decided to deliver his SONA at the Batasang Pambansa Complex.

Only a small number of people are authorized to attend to reduce the risk of Duterte’s coronavirus exposure.

The President told the people in his recent public address that the government was doing all it could to reduce the country’s COVID-19 infections to the “barest minimum.”
