The coronavirus crisis is expected to cast a shadow on President Rodrigo Duterte's penultimate State of the Nation Address next week. As COVID-19 brings the world economy to a standstill, Philippine senators want the chief executive to lay out concrete measures to fight the impact of the pandemic.

The president's media group guarantees Duterte's speech will be aired live and unedited on broadcast and social media. That's as authorities prohibit members of the press to cover the event inside the House premises. - The World Tonight, ANC, July 22, 2020
