Extraordinary times call for extreme measures.

Cebu Congressman Duke Frasco made history the other day as he joined fellow lawmakers in casting an all-important vote for a bill through webcam.

The politiko, along with many others, set up a live conference on the Zoom app as they tackled the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act, which gave President Rodrigo Duterte special powers meant to combat the novel coronavirus.

“The clear and present danger that this virus poses calls for extraordinary measures for the protection of our people. I have full trust and confidence in President Duterte,” Frasco said to explain his vote.

#PRRD signs Bayanihan to Heal as One Act. In a special session held via electronic communication and live streaming last Monday, I voted YES on the bill that would grant special powers to our President to act on the Covid19 pandemic. The clear and present danger that this virus poses calls for extraordinary measures for the protection of our people. I have full trust and confidence in President Duterte.
