Duterte credited his foresight to his voracious appetite for knowledge about COVID-19 from various sources, including Facebook.

“Mabuti na lang early on my term may ginawa ako para sa inyo. Ito nakikita ko na noon pa. Itong COVID na ito, sinusundan ko talaga ‘yan. Kasi sinasabi Johnny-come-lately… hindi ho,” said Duterte in a late night press conference.

“Ako ang pinakauna sa lahat nag-lockdown kasi nasusundan ko na ang istorya. At sabi ko nagbabasa naman ako different sources of knowledge — Facebook, everything — lahat na ng what I can get my hands on to study the matter because Presidente ako. Dumating nga,” he added.
