Re: Amendment to the Price Act to add Personal  Protective Equipment and Supplies in  the list of Basic Necessities .

Dear Senator Pimentel and Cong Gatchalian,

We are proposing an amendment to the Price Act to include Health Protective Devices and goods like face mask ,  N95 and surgical , alcohol , hand sanitizer , disinfectant , gowns , coverall, aprons, shoe cover , head cover, face shield , googles, gloves , ventilators  and similar goods and supplies  in the list of Basic necessities that will be subject to price freeze under the Price Act. In addition, we also propose that all online purchases of Basic necessities and prime commodities should be subject to and governed by the provisions of the Price Act. 

We are submitting the above proposals as we continue to learn lessons from the COVID 19.

Kindly acknowledge receipt .Thank you very much.
