Manila Philippines, A nationwide smoking ban will be signed tomorrow, March 07, 2017 and set to be implemented across the Philippines, replicating rules currently observed in president Duterte’s former jurisdiction, Davao City, where he was mayor.
The new rules, which have been drawn up in an executive order will see all public places across the country – indoor and outdoor – become smoke-free areas.
“What is being done in Davao is set to be done nationwide,”
“There will be nobody smoking in public places anymore, whether indoor or outdoor. Parks, bus stations, and even in vehicles. All these are considered public places,” the health secretary said, adding that the executive order is expected to be signed tomorrow.
