Regional Development Council X pushes for “Anti-Patient’s Dishonesty Act”

LGUs can implement new acts feasible for the safety protocols needed by their area.

In its 121st Full Council session held 20 March 2020, Regional Development Council (RDC) X chaired by Misamis Occidental Governor Philip T. Tan, passed Resolution No. 24 (S. 2020), enjoining all local government units (LGUs) in the region to pass an ordinance to be known as the “Anti-Patient’s Dishonesty Act.” The landmark resolution underscores and acknowledges the debilitating effects of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic to regional development as it puts forward a very practical but critical mitigating measure that is being pushed for adoption regionwide.
