Traditional cockfighting will be performed and overseen by the Department of the Interior and Local Government, with minimum public health requirements and technology-based betting tightly enforced by the LGU.

Cockfighting is a sport that pits gamecocks against one another. President Ferdinand Marcos issued Presidential Decree No. 449, or the Cockfighting Law of 1974, in 1974, outlining the country’s cockfighting regulations.

Until the end of the year, the Philippines is on Alert Level 2 across the board.

The rules for the nationwide Alert Level System for Covid-19 response have also been established by the IATF.

As of Tuesday, there have been a total of 2,836,868 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the country.
